A humble start from Soni Memorial Trust
"This is Rajiv Soni from Gurgaon. A prominent Chartered Accountant and a teacher. Now he is busy imparting free primary and secondary education to underprivileged children. In the outdoors." Aditya Raj Kapoor 2nd initiative starts Feb 2022 Encouraged by the success of getting the first three kids into a regular school 9 months later, we started our next initiative at Kanhaiye Gaon, Sector 45, Gurgaon. We are of the firm belief that education helps break the cycle of poverty. These are real children with real dreams...and deserve an education that sees them treated with dignity and worth; one that will help them to fulfil their God-given potential, no matter their circumstances. We also recognise that the level of vulnerability has risen significantly for children living in poverty since the onslaught of the COVID-19 Pandemic.
1st initiative Dec 2020 Gurgaon
"Just a very humble effort to add some literacy value to the extremely poor children of some farmers family...trying to get them to learn the alphabet and numbers. This itself may take me months."
"The human mind is the fundamental resource. When learning and teaching happen continuously without any barriers, everything improves. This is a small effort towards a farmer's family who I met quite by accident in Gurgaon few months ago, and who longed to learn. Learn anything- English, Math, Science... and so I started." Rajiv Soni
