Forty-eight students, accompanied by Ms. Bindu Gupta and Ms. Nidhi Bindra, visited the temporary school run by the Bhavishya NGO.

In addition to clothes, the club generously donated stationery, eatables, and chocolates, bringing smiles to the faces of many children. A significant highlight of the visit was the donation of sewing machines, which hold the promise of long-term empowerment for the women living in temporary huts along the Yamuna Bank. These machines will facilitate income-generating opportunities and foster self-sufficiency. Previously, plastic chairs and tables were donated to this school, enhancing the learning environment for the children.
