College students turn teachers for underprivileged kids

 Absence of physical classes, delayed examination, and the perpetual anxiety of future is making many youngsters worried. But some youngsters, when made to stay indoors during the lockdown, chose to channelise their energies via internet and educate the underprivileged kids. Involved in social welfare, these youngsters are from Delhi University and other varsities, across India.

These college students are volunteers of a project, Teach From Home, which is an initiative of the not-for-profit organisation, World Youth Council (WYC), and aims to provide quality education to slum kids. Urvashi Goyal, founder of WYC, says, “Each volunteer dedicatedly teaches one to four children at a time, giving them the much needed individual support and guidance, for at least three days in a week. We have around 3,000 volunteers with us pan India.”
