Let’s Green Darjeeling an NGO focused on socio-environmental issues started a new initiative to provide school bags and stationery to children from underprivileged sections.
A distribution program was held at Divyabani on the 13th January 2018. About 25 children from areas such as Tukver, Cidar cottage , Mungpoo, and Red Cross area of Darjeeling participated at the event, where each child was given one school bag, 1 dozen exercise books, 3 pencils, sharpener etc was given on behalf of LGD Society.
Mr. Tony Roy from LGD said, “We believe this was a small contribution to help with their education.”
LGD Society also took this opportunity to speak about environmental awareness and importance of its protection to the children. Their own young volunteers known as “Green Pandas” held the session for them.
“We hope to organise similar programs in other areas of Darjeeling for needy students in the near future as well,” added Mr Roy.
The project is being coordinated by Mrs Sumitra Tamang and her team from LGD Society Darjeeling.
