Go to gratitude wall

Neeraj Murmu used to work as a child labourer in the mica mines of Koderma-Giridih region of Jharkhand, risking his life every day to earn a paltry Rs 5 per kg yield. His own experience has inspired him to offer free education to at least 200 children in his village to prevent them from getting into such an inhuman grind. After being rescued under the Bal Mitra Gram Programme of Kailash Satyarthi Foundation, he went to a school in Class 8 . After passing Class 10 exams, he went to pursue a diploma in engineering. But due to medical reasons, he had to drop out. He saw that due to a statewide strike of para-teachers, schools had been shut for a long time and he started free classes for children of his village at his home and later rented rooms and started Kailash Satyarti Public School where free education was given to the poor and the orphans. He is also the proud recepient of the Diana Award 2020 through a virtual ceremony for his fight against child labour. #letappreciate #letsupdeed #ruraleducation
