Educational Qualification : M.SC. (GEOGRAPHY) MA (ECOLOGY) M.Ed. Ph.D.

Work in field of literacy : Having completed my Doctorate in Education the passion and urge to reach out and give the best of education where it was needed the most, made me join as Principal in 2004 the welfare projects started by Haryana Police and DAV College Managing Committee, New Delhi to provide a good standard schooling opportunity with ethical moral values to the wards of Police Personnel whose lives are highly stressful and challenging with long, strenuous duty hours leaving hardly any time for their families. Along with providing strong academic backbone, as a Zonal Secretary of DAV National Sports I am wholeheartedly devoted to promote maximum participation in the school students in sports guiding them towards State & National levels. Recognition and appreciation all over encouraged me to establish a chain of 12 more Police DAV’s Schools and I was entrusted the responsibility of the manager of 7 such schools. Due to our efforts our students have been selected into IITs, CA, NDA and Medical Courses.

No of Beneficiaries : 500

Social Impact : Social Impact – My work as the head of a school and manager of seven Police Schools does not end just at shaping the future generation. My endeavour in the field of education extends to the whole family of my students. There are programmes organized for the families of Police Personal with an aim to educate them on latest technology. There are computer literacy courses, self defence classes and Yoga classes and also hobby classes for their recreation and personal grooming. Personal interaction with parents to understand each child, holding effective parenting and counseling sessions for parents to guide them into the complexities of child rearing is an earnest desire which gives me a deep satisfaction. This has an impact on wholesome family environment thereby effecting the social famework.

Fund Outlay : 20,00,000

The challenge of arranging funds is being met : Subsidized fee from Police Personnel is covered up with fee collected from general category students.

This Award is going to impact the work in future : Receiving the literacy Hero Award in appreciation of my humble service will provide motivation to me to work more on it. It will ease the economical challenges involved to some extent. The award money will not be utilized for personal interest but for further enhancing the project work.
