Working for the Poor children in JNU campus: Abhigyan Annual Day Celebration Photos from JNU campus

Posted in Delhi, JNU, Kids by Vik on February 21, 2010

Abhigyan is a JNU students initiative for the education of the children of the poor construction labourers in the JNU campus. You can read more about Abhigyan on their website. Visit the Abhigyan website. Abhigyan started in 2005 due to the initiative of Rakshi Rashmi (see her photo below) who wanted to do something for the cause next door. Abhi in Abhigyan is taken from Abhiradhi, the then JNU student from Thailand who used her scooty to ferry kids to the make shift school (under a tree at that time; later the FSA office). Read the full history here on their blog.

Today was their annual function at the SSS auditorium in JNU. His Excellency , the ambassador of Cuba was the chief guest along with another diplomat (high commissioner).

Here are the pics shot from my digicam by me. I am an amateur photographer so don’t mind the quality. Please note that I was not present for the first one hour of the event.
