In an attempt to transform and empower children through education, Zeal Foundation, the
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) arm of Delhi based air cargo, GSA airlines service provider –
Zeal Global, has pledged to extend its help to government and local communities.
According to a statement issued here, the foundation has been directing all their efforts to offer
food relief for people who are largely affected by this pandemic, especially students, children and
families from underprivileged sections of the National capital.
Through the collaboration, over 2000 educational and nutritional kits have been distributed to the
slum area kids of age 3-6 years. Zeal Foundation identified, 1000 of such vulnerable kids belonging to
more than 50 Anganwadis in Rajinder Nagar area who have been harshly impacted.
The foundation’s efforts are premised on the vision that every child, irrespective of his/her socio-
economic conditions has full and equal rights to access proper educational and nutritional support.
The 3 centres for the distribution of these kits were – Valmiki Mandir Dusghra village, Chaupal, C
Block, Budh Nagar and Sonia Gandhi Camp, Loha Mandi.
To the existing relief efforts of the Aam Aadmi Party government, the foundation contributed
stationary kits comprising a notebook, pencil box, colour set etc. and nutrition packets to ensure
sustenance. Under the coronavirus guidelines, the kids were ensured to be given masks and
sanitizers beforehand following social distancing.
The party’s National spokesperson and AAP MLA Raghav Chadha, commenting on the distribution
said, “We are facing challenging times with onset of the pandemic. There are so many students and
kids from the Anganwadis that depend on school and meals to nourish their bodies and minds. The
COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted all these educational and nutrition-related measures delivered
through schools. We are happy to join forces with Zeal Foundation in our on-going relief efforts in
Rajinder Nagar Legislative Assembly with distribution of stationary and nutrition kits to these kids.”
Nipun Anand, Founder, Zeal Foundation said, “Covid has affected many kids and families especially
the ones belonging to underprivileged sections of the society. It’s important that we all come
together to help those most in need in this critical time. By supporting the dedicated efforts of the
AAP Government who continue providing much needed access to food and education, we’re helping
ensure that the Anganwadi kids can spend more time focusing on their wellbeing and education for
a brighter future.”
