Would you help your old school?Recently heard via my friends about a small government school that over a period of time slowly became anything but a school. Broken walls, no windows, no decent chairs and benches. But still the poor students were learning what ever their teachers could teach with what little they had.
So, this group of friends (not ex-students) got together and found out about a few old students who are currently well placed. Secured funds and more importantly dedicated their time in renovating the old building, getting the educative materials and drinking water. Now they have started free meal/lunch for teachers and students.
A noble gesture, I always feel that giving money is charity but getting involved in such tasks are more than charity, it is a chance to repay to the society for what it gave us sometime back. I think, when a chances comes by to help our old schools and its teachers we should be glad to do it.
This is different from helping people when they ask for it. This is something that comes from within us and makes us feel satisfied.
