Kalakot, Sanjay Sharma : The contribution of teachers is incomparable in making children a good citizen by giving good values, but if a teacher plays the role of a social worker, then it is icing on the cake. Teachers are innumerable only by profession, but in any case, even the poorest of the poor children are rarely found, who put body, mind and money to give education. One such social worker teacher is Harnam Singh of Kalakot.
It is inspiring for teachers who want to stay in city schools to do less effort. Harnam Singh became an inspiration to other teachers as well. He has put a donation box in his middle school padar. Every teacher puts some amount in it every day. In the year that money is spent on the education of needy children. They believe that people put money in the donation boxes of temples. This school is also a temple of learning. Putting a donation box here is also beneficial for the needy children.
Teacher Harnam Singh has been doing the work of educating poor children with his salary for years. For this he received the Best Teacher Award. Now he has made up his mind to spend the money received as this award in the education of poor children. Teacher Harnam Singh was recently awarded the Best Teacher Award on Teachers’ Day, in which he was presented with a silver medal by Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha, a certificate and Rs 50,000. But instead of cherishing it, he wants to spend it on the same children, due to whom he got this honor.
Harnam Singh said that out of fifty thousand rupees received in the award and fifty thousand rupees, one lakh rupees would be spent in the education and initiation of needy children. He told that he has deposited all the money in the bank and will continue to give books, bags, copies, pens etc. to the poor children according to their needs. Many children studying in the middle school, Padar of Education Zone Khawas, in which he is working, are from poor families and have taken this step to help such poor children. So that children do not face any problem in getting education and children can become bright by reading and writing.
Sweaters and shoes were given to poor children from their salary: Last year, when it snowed in Narla area and winter was at its peak, teacher Harnam Singh gave sweaters and shoes to 25 needy children of the school from his salary. His wife Surekha Devi had also contributed in this noble cause. Harnam Singh said that the total number of children in the school is around 70. Of these, 25 children are very poor and some are orphans. When such children were seen chilling during winter in school, they could not stop themselves from giving sweaters and shoes.
