Chandigarh man helps needy children by providing books, other study materials

Many students even today can't buy books due to the financial condition of their families. Chandigarh's Sandeep Kumar has come forward to help these students. He has collected about 10,000 books in the last two years. Sandeep also wants other people to come forward for this social cause and help the poor children to educate them. The people who come to Sandeep for books have appreciated his move. In their view, he is serving the society for the betterment of budding students, who can't afford to buy books and stationery items. Revealing his journey to come forward for the social cause, Sandeep who trained as a teacher said that during days of JBT training, he found that the children of financially poor families did not have resources to buy books. "When I came back to Chandigarh, I found the condition terrible. I was looking at my books when this thought struck my mind that others can use these books. So I thought, why should not I collect these books for those children?" Sandeep said. Sandeep and his team also organise camps in colleges and ask students to give books they don't need. His team members go to door-to-door to collect the books and distribute the same to needy students. He has also established an office where anyone can give books. He says he is also planning to adopt 200 needy children to help them in their study. He wants more people to join his movement to educate the poor and needy children.
