Tribune News Service

Ludhiana, April 19

Kundan Vidya Mandir Senior Secondary School, Civil Lines, was awarded with the prestigious REX Karmaveer Education Change Champion Fellowship and Karmaveer Chakra Award instituted by the International Confederation of NGOs (iCONGO) in partnership with the United Nations in New Delhi.

The award and fellowship are for schools that promote volunteering or service and value-based and character-rooted holistic education. For the year 2019, Rex Karmaveer team selected just 100 schools across India.

Established in 1941, the school has completed 79 years of its existence . It was chosen for the award because of exemplary work the school was doing in its community outreach programme. The school has many ongoing projects such as “Prarth Club”, “Go Green” and “Joy of Giving”, which sensitise students to social, economic and cultural realities of the country. The school has also adopted another slum area school, Hindu Putri Pathshala, under the aegis of its philanthropic effort.

Members of the Prarth club, school students as well as teachers regularly visit the Pathshala to provide training in hygiene and etiquettes to the students. The school was the first in the city to install solar power plant as part of its environment protection efforts.

Navita Puri, principal, said it was the only school from Punjab to be felicitated and recognised for volunteering through the awards.
