XYZ (Xtremely Young Zoroastrians), the community’s leading non-profit organisation which aims at the all-round, social and cultural development of the community’s tots and teens, held two much needed social service drives recently for underprivileged children, donating a school van for differently-abled tribal children, at Samaaveshi Paathshala, in Karjat; and providing school kits for Zilla Parishad Pathshaala – Vandavali, in Murbad district.
The NGO – Samaaveshi Paathshaala shared their need for a school van to transport students to and from villages, as the roads were in bad shape in the rains. XYZ raised adequate funds to acquire a school van which now ensures the safe passage of children from remote villages, thereby facilitating a brighter future for these children.
XYZ’s Behram’s Battalion also made a memorable day for students of the Zilla Parishad Pathshalla at Vandavali in Murbad district by donating school kits comprising a school bag, raincoat, umbrella, note-books, stationery and water bottle. BB raised funds for this via a newspaper collection drive and donations from parents and well-wishers, who sponsored school kits at Rs. 500/- per child. Within just 2 weeks, the dynamic team BB had collected nearly a lakh and a half, securing kits for 220 primary and secondary kids. Kudos to XYZ for such superb initiatives, but more so, for inculcating in our children a sense of service and giving back to society.
