Arjun, a class IX student at Dhanas Government School, with his two brothers, had stopped attending school and subsequently dropped out of school after the introduction of the online education system, the fact that he did not have a smartphone. On Monday morning, however, Arjun was called from school and given a smartphone to help him take classes online.

Following a report by The Indian Express on how students at Dhanas government school had to choose to drop out because they couldn’t access online classes, Bollywood actor Sonu Sood and philanthropist Karan Gilhotra donated smartphones to students. After the report was published, Sonu Sood tweeted that children in need will receive phones and not miss their classes.

Gilhotra distributed the phones to the students, while Sonu Sood joined them via a video call to interact with them. In the first phase, 35 students from the school received the phones.

I am so happy that the children can study now and will not miss their lessons. Parents of students here make daily bets and cannot afford to buy smartphones. I was so shocked to see when I found a student picking up a rag after giving up. But now they can study! said Seema, the school principal.

Bhawna, a student in Class XII also got the smart phone. Bhawna was unable to attend the online classes. Living with her 80-year-old grandfather, who sells vegetables, she couldn’t afford a smartphone all this time and would either manage to get her friend’s homework or try to study on her own.

With the COVID-19 outbreak, this year has been pretty tough for everyone. It is disheartening how many children today cannot attend online classes because their families do not have smartphones. It is an honor for me to be able to contribute by helping them in such a situation so that they can continue to learn without having to struggle, said Sonu Sood at his initiative.

I always feel honored to contribute to my city. Students are the future of our nation and difficult situations like these should not prevent them from learning and growing. Education is essential and should never stop and by helping students in need we continue to support the dreams and aspirations of students, said Karan Gilhotra, a city philanthropist.

Also previously, the actor and his friend had helped students at the Koti village government school in Morni, after a similar report in Express. After Morni in Haryana, several requests from Maharashtra, Punjab, Orissa, and Andhra Pradesh came to the actor, where phones were delivered.
