Bollywood actor Sonu Sood has emerged messiah for the unfortunate during the Covid-19 lockdown. The actor has been giving it back to the community with various acts of selflessness and he has once again made waves for yet another initiative. The Dabangg star recently met an engineer from Bihar's Katihar who quit his job and started a school for orphaned children and named it after the actor and philanthropist.
Sood will be providing a new building for this school and higher education to underprivileged children.
Earlier this year, Sonu was left surprised to read about the 27-year-old engineer Birendra Kumar Mahato quitting his full-time job to open a school for orphaned children, and that he named it after the actor.
Moved by Mahato's endeavour to provide free education and food to 110 children, the actor met Mahato and the children at the school which also functions as a shelter home.
Interestingly, Sonu Sood even spent time with Mahato to understand the needs of the school from the ration to quality education, building awareness to bridging the education gap between rich and poor.
By the end of the day, Sonu started work on a new building for the school so that it can house more underprivileged children, and ensure there is food for every child.
"Increasing access to education is one of the best ways to combat poverty. We aim to educate children from the marginalised sections of the society so that they have a better chance at job opportunities," Sonu Sood was quoted as saying by The Free Press Journal.
"Higher education is something we are working on. The other important aspect is nutrition and overall well-being as this school is also a night shelter," the actor added.
