In this pandemic situation, almost everyone is grappling with financial problems. For a middle-class family, it is becoming harder to make two ends meet. Providing one’s child with a decent education is getting tougher due to the ever-rising educational costs.
Our school security guard, Mr Parminder Singh, was facing a similar problem. He has been working at this job for the past five years, and I knew he was facing some financial difficulties. It was unbearable for me to see him struggling. So I paid the tuition fee and the developmental charges for the entire academic session of his daughter, who is studying in Grade 2.
This will surely bring him a bit of relief.
If we can assist in educating a child, we must.
