Amb. Super recited that the while on the distribution process, his team is also enlightening the minds of underprivileged kids about the importance of education.
“We are targeting learning institutions and children in nearby communities with the exercise, and I feel very sad seeing kids using old notebooks in order to write their new academic lesions and if god willing, this initiative will continue up to the adjoining years, Amb. Isaac added”.
