Doing something useful after retirement from State Bank of India, is what Sh. Gupta set out to do. He found his calling in a child who was whiling away his time instead of going to school. Sh. Gupta decided to take up the cause of education of the economically weaker section of the society so that the children become literate and become an asset to our country instead of turning to crime and being a menace.
What started with four children is now a full fledged 3 After School centres in 3 locations with ~ 200 children.
The 10 year celebration was to celebrate the growth and education of the children and to thank all the teachers and patrons who contributed from time to time to ensure that the children are educated and are exposed to the same level of education as the children from other schools.
Gupta sir thanked all who have helped him along in this journey. His special thanks went to Mrs. Inderjeet Ahuja, Mr. Yadav, Mr. Jain, Jyotsana who helped him in the early years. He thanked Mr. Vimal Sharma, President, RWA Sector 50, who has provided all support by allowing the classes to be held at the community center.
In his address, after giving away mementos to the teachers, Mr. Vimal Sharma announced that he will provide wifi to the Sunshine children for their connectivity so that they can continue their online classes. The children, very happy with this announcement, gave a big round of applause to the RWA, sector 50.
The children performed beautifully and engaged the audience with their talent and capability.
Mrs. Bhupender Kaur motivated the children to do well in their lives and prove to be the Nobel Prize for their Gupta sir.
