Vidya Comfort New School

For those who read the earlier blog about the SUPW pilot project, will know this is happening at the new Vidya Comfort School in Phase III, Gurgaon.

Yesterday evening, just back from Lucknow I had the opportunity to attend the Inauguration of the school coupled with Vidya’s celebration of 25years since its founding. Guest of Honour was Mr Salman Khurshid and our good friend Rajesh Khullar, Municipal Commissioner of Gurgaon was also present.

The students, mostly from the bridge programmes in Delhi put up a dance show and there’s only one word to adequately describe it – WOW!! To think that many of these students have returned to education after dropping out! They had great choreography, energy, an incredibly high standard and sheer joy in what they were doing. The audience rightly gave the children a standing ovation at the end of the performance.

Vidya has interesting times ahead as it moves from old ways of working to running its own school. However, they have a passionate, dedicated team under the visionary leadership of Mrs Rashmi Mishra and i’m sure that the school will become a beacon for what can be achieved in terms of education for those coming from less-privileged backgrounds. I wish them all the best and assure that where we can help we will be there for them.
