There have been several individuals, groups, families, NGOs that have come forward during COVID crisis and have helped a lot of people in their capacities, it was not easy for people to risk their lives and go out there to support people in need. One such NGO we know of is Dulari Devi Foundation.
Dulari Devi has come forward during the pandemic to help people specially children for their education. The most hard-hit sector for the youth, education sector. I have personally gone to Dulari Devi foundation and have seen the brilliant support system for the children. Providing with computers, Tablets for the children to be able to be a part of the online education, further taking several other initiatives. Dulari Devi took a step further and started to donate food, grains and ration along with other basic needs that people were not able to attain. When it comes to NGOs, people often tend to get confused about their authenticity, Dulari Devi foundation believes in receiving resources mostly, if anyone wishes to can donate money as well however providing with stationary or food or anything can help someone is prioritized. We often wonder where to turn around if we want to donate something or help someone who needs it, Dulari Devi is one of the most effective NGO’s that has actually been teaching, feeding and providing for several of children and has been changing the society for good.
