School Support Programs 2020-2021
During 2020-2021 the schools are mostly closed due to Covid-19 pandemic. But whenever we get an opportunity to serve, we continue to support underprivileged students through charitable activities in different states of India. We ensure that each activity is conducted in accordance with the Covid-19 guidelines issued by the local, state and central bodies.
Covid safety materials for schools
On September 30, 2020, the Ministry of Home Affairs India issued Order no. 40-3/2020-DM-I (A) permitting state/UT governments to determine the reopening of schools no earlier than October 15, 2020. The Chandigarh administration allowed schools to reopen for regular teaching of classes IX to XII from November 2, 2020.
The principal of Government Model Sr. Sec. School, Dhanas, Chandigarh approached Vishav Manav Ruhani Kendra to assist them with safety materials in compliance with the Covid-19 SOP/guidelines issued by the Ministry of Education in India.
Without hesitation, we donated and delivered masks, 20-litres of hand sanitizers as well as 500-ml bottles of hand sanitizers to the school.
I take the opportunity to congratulate Vishav Manav Ruhani Kendra. We would like to express our deepest gratitude for your continued support and generous contribution as evidenced by your donation of hand sanitizers (5 liter cans and 500 ml bottles), and masks. Because of your generosity we are able to further our mission in bettering the lives of children protected from COVID-19. It is really commendable to see how you organized your line of charitable activities to make our children protected from COVID-19.
We thank you once again for the support and compassion we have received from you so long and hope we can count on you again.

Clean filtered drinking water for students
The government school in Karoran Kalan in Mohali, Punjab contacted Vishav Manav Ruhani Kendra regarding the water supply at the school. The school’s water supply comes from a borewell in the fields. However, the school staff do not recommend students to drink that water. Consequently, the students bring water from their home. When they need more water while at school, the nearby students have to go back to their home to refill their water bottles. The school principal shared this problem with our volunteers and requested a water cooler with Reverse Osmosis (RO) filtration.
In March 2021, Vishav Manav Ruhani Kendra donated and installed a 60-liter water cooler with a RO filter and a 1,000-liter water tank in the school. Now, the students and staff get filtered water.
In April 2021, Vishav Manav Ruhani Kendra volunteers visited the Government Elementary School in Bassi Wazid, Hoshiarpur, Punjab to offer support to the school. The school principal informed that the students were affected by the irregular water supply in this remote area. She was planning to purchase a water tank using school funds, and needed help to organize a water cooler. Vishav Manav Ruhani Kendra donated and delivered a 60-liter water cooler to the school.
We, the teachers, all members of the school management committee, and students of Government Elementary School, Bassi Wazid are grateful to Vishav Manav Ruhani Kendra (Regd.) for the installation of a water cooler in our school. It was the dire need of this institution. Vishav Manav Ruhani Kendra is doing well for the betterment of human beings. We all pray for a prosperous future of society. May it develop harmony among human beings.
We thank you once again for the support and compassion we have received from you for so long and hope we can count on you again.
