Snehalaya boarders offered Free Education at
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 USTM.
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.
