Dr.Kalam Meets Aasraa Children

Our children were very fortunate to meet Dr. A P J Abdul Kalam, former President of India during his recent visit to Dehradun… Here is a segment from his blog……..

On the way back, I visited Dr Dhirendra Sharma and his wife Nirmala’s home “Nirmala-Nilay”. Their AASRAA Trust is involved with Street Children group activities taking care of their health, welfare and education. The Trust is run by a group of socially concerned ladies. I interacted with the children over there and the children took an oath “I can do it”, “We can do it” and “Nation will do it”. Before leaving, a student recited a beautiful poem in Hindi “Ganga pe aanch aayi hai – Ganga bachaaiye”

With best wishes,
Kalam

Dr.Kalam’s message of being strong citizens and being part of and responsible for creating and sustaining a great nation captivated the children.  Dr.Kalam infused hope in our marginalized slum and street children, when he reiterated Aasraa’s dream –  with guidance, education and love  each child has the potential to be a  future leader.
