Young Aryan aspires to serve the country as a soldier!
Aryan studies in Class 6 and joined PYDS Learning Academy recently. He was previously with John Martyn Memorial School. Aryan's great grandfather migrated from the east of Nepal to Bhagwantpur in Dehradun years ago, and they now live in Untari Village. His father and uncles started working as casual workers and later purchased a few mules for towing sand and gravel from the river bed. They also hold some collective land where they grow vegetables for personal consumption. Aryan's elder sister Nidhi also studies with PYDS.
Aryan's father's monthly income is Rs 12,000, which is barely enough to meet the needs of the family of 6 people. Your contribution of Rs 300 per month will sponsor the education, boarding and healthcare needs of Aryan for a whole academic year.

Sound body; sound mind
We ensure high nutritional value and hygiene in every meal we serve to all the children. We serve approximately 1350 meals a day for our children. A mix of diced cucumber, carrot, beetroot and radish is served as a salad with lunch. All children are also fed fruits rich in vitamins and natural sugars. We recently bought an electric griddle. This added more variety to our menu as we have introduced items like Parantha, Dosa, Uttapam, etc. We have also made slight adjustments like moving gas cylinders outside the kitchen thus ensuring a safer and more spacious cooking area. We also acquired partition plates in order to serve more items in a meal.
Apart from academic growth, our support extends to the physical, emotional, social and intellectual care of the child. Lots of activities were undertaken in the Tinkering Lab, a learner's space where our students love to spend their time.
