Rotary Club to sponsor education of two girls


GANGTOK, March 31: Members of the Rotary Club of Gangtok met the Governor Sudarshan Agarwal here at Raj Bhawan today and assured to sponsor the education of two bright girls coming from poor families.
Anita Tamang and Sabina Thapa will be enrolled in Class V from this year to the Him Jyoti Girls School in Dehradun and all expenses including tuition fees, boarding, food and uniforms will be borne by the Rotary Club.
According to the members, both Sabina and Anita study in State government schools and are good in studies although they come from very poor families.
Both the girls along with their guardians and two officials from the State Human Resources Development Department were present at the Raj Bhawan today.
The Him Jyoti School, a bold and ambitious initiative of the newly formed Himalayan School Society, is a residential school for bright girls from socio-economically deprived families of Uttarakhand. It was established in 2003 by Sudarshan Agarwal, former Governor of Uttarakhand and envisages a society replete with dignity, equality and purposeful education to the deserving students of Uttarakhand.

When i started my blog on Sikkim way back in 2007, i had it clear on my mind that this blog shall help people look out for knowledge on Sikkim. I always wanted a knowledge house about Sikkim, its past, present and future. I do not know over the years how much did i succeed but my determination to let other understand my Sikkim is always giving me a push. with regards Shital Pradhan (himalayanreview@gmail.com)
