A special school for underprivileged children in Pari Chowk metro station complex in Greater Noida was inaugurated on August 17 by the Noida Metro Rail Corporation (NMRC) in collaboration with the Birla Institute of Management Technology.

The school has been named as BIMTECH Vidya Kendra.

Aim of BIMTECH Vidya Kendra:

The free of cost school — BIMTECH Vidya Kendra — aims at providing basic and life skills education to children from poor families, especially belonging to the Banjara community and migrant labourers, the NMRC said.

“This is the first of its kind initiative in India where a school for the underprivileged is being run under a functional metro station,” the NMRC said, adding that it plans to support more such initiatives in the future and is willing to provide its premises for these projects.

“This initiative will also provide training in computer skills to young girls who have completed schooling / college and belong to poor families. This training will help in providing them necessary skills required to earn their livelihood in a respectable manner,” the NMRC said.

Who inaugurated the school?

The school was inaugurated by NMRC Managing Director Alok Tandon along with BIMTECH Director Harivansh Chaturvedi, according to an official statement.

  • The teachers also are volunteers who have come forward for the noble cause after taking out time from their busy schedules.
