It is good and appropriate reach out from the famous travel portal which facilitates our travel requirements and we thought they end up with that service. But there seems to be corporate social responsibility with this famed organization which wants to give scholarships to the students who lost their parents during the COVID period. It is really challenging for the small children to study further when the parents are lost. The COVID has put the students in peril. While the govt came forward to help in certain cases and some philanthropists gave temporary help, this beginning made by MakeMyTrip will surely help deserving students to carry forward their academic ambitions and to structure a career of their choice. I am sure that those children who are availing this scholarships would be more committed than ever and make the portal much happier by doing well in life.
