Sudheer and Hema Piddi celebrated the birthday of their 5 year old daughter in a completely different and unique way. They decided to sponsor the educational expenses of a girl child from an underprivileged background.
It was Shravani’s 5th birthday. And the parents this time decided to celebrate it in a different way instead of throwing a lavish party for their child, they wanted to make their daughter and other relatives and friends towards the need of poor.
Sudheer Piddi got inspired by Beti Bachao Beti Padho movement, an initiative started by Modi Ji. Sudheer Piddi himself is a corporate social responsibility trainer at a multinational company, he decided the family should sponsor the school fees, uniform, books study and educational tours of a girl child.
He said as the government provides education for girls free of cost, we decided to choose a girl in a private high school. Then we approached SSK High School at Bavangadde, Gadag, where there are students from poor and lower middle class.
The principle of SSK High School, wanted to identify a genuine beneficiary for their cause. “We had a teachers meeting and chose a girl whose father had passed away and mother works as a domestic help.
They even inspired the school’s chairman RK Habib, I am also thinking of doing something of this kind we will also encourage it among parents of our students so that the children in need can be helped.
Sudheer Piddi said if possible we want to expand our help to other students as well. “Though we are a middle class family, we just want to share what we have.
