Snehalaya boarders offered Free Education
Another example of social
responsibility has been laid by ERD Foundation, Guwahati.
Montu Kalita and Jaison Angkang - two inmates of
Snehalaya had almost lost their hope for higher studies
after successfully completing their studies upto higher
secondary level. Because Snehalaya is able to support
only upto that level. Then, the most generous and kind
hearted Chairman of ERD Foundation and Chancellor of
University of Science & Technology, Meghalaya Shri
Mahbubul Hoque has come into their lives as the “Santa
Claus”. He had admitted Montu & Jaison totally free of
cost at his University and committed for their free
education throughout their academic sessions. Both of
them have taken admission in Bachelor of Social Work
under the School of Social Sciences and Humanities of
Fr Lukose Cheruvalel, Founder of Snehalaya has expressed
his thankfulness for this kind gesture.
It is worth mentioned that this is not only the first
instance, ERD Foundation has already offered free
education to more than five hundred poor meritorious
students in its different educational institutions and
another such five hundred are still pursuing their
studies under this noble mission.
