Story of Deepika Minz
Today sharing the story of such powerful 11 years old schoolgirl Deepika Minz from Jharkhand who started holding free classes for children on the streets at the time of COVID-19 when all schools were shut down.
Why she started
Dipika willingly decided to use her spare time to teach them as she was worried to see the children not being able to go to school due to Covid19 when govt had to shut all educational institutions, which affected the study of children across the state.
Where she started
It’s been two months since when Deepika Minj, a Grade seven schoolgirl, has been holding classes in Chandapara village in Khunti district in Jharkhand.
How she started
Initially, just a few children started coming her home to take classes which later turned into 80, so it became difficult to accommodate all the children there so shifted to a vacant classroom of a closed govt school.
Support from Gram Sabha
After seeing Her devotion, the local Gram Sabha, a part of the Panchayati Raj system for village development, has also managed a blackboard and mat for the children so they could sit and study.
Other facilities by a non-profit organization
A non-profit organisation has not only allowed its library rooms to be used for study during the rainy season. But also they arranged an inverter so that the children could study even after the power cut.
What we should learn from her
We should learn from this little girl that we can always do good things for the people around us. We always attain our good by doing good to others. Our small efforts can bring meaning to someone’s life. We should always be ready to help less fortunate people around us. We can find the real essence of life by helping others.
