‘Cubs Club’ organizes sale of bakery items, to support poor students

By 121 News Reporter

Chandigarh 29th December:---- There is a Not for Profit Organization, with a difference functioning in Chandigarh: Cubs Club. Cubs Club is a collection of working mothers who keep organizing activities for the development of children which are the future of our Nation. The Cubs Club organized a unique sale to raise funds and help children from economically weaker sections, pursue their academic careers in higher classes. As part of this endeavor, a 'bake sale' was held at Elante Mall. At this sale homemade bakery items, all of which were made by moms who are members of Cubs Club, were put on sale. Says Ms. Meenu Prashar, Convenor, Cubs Club, "The income generated from this sale will be donated to a Government School for scholarship and stationary for 9th and 10th class students from the underprivileged sections of society." Adds Meenu, "Cubs Club will be adopting at least 10 deserving students of class 9 and 10 of Government School, Sector 11, Chandigarh, for their education. Apart from this the Club will help all students of these classes with basic stationary."


Since education plays an important role in development of mind, social skills and has the power to eradicate all evils from society, the Government has very rightly passed the right to education act for all children which provides free education up to Class 8, in Government schools. However, there are many children who deserve and wish to study further but due lack of funds they are unable to pursue their studies. The Cubs Club initiative will surely help such students.


Says Ms. Rati Sharma, Co Convenor, Cubs Club, "Keeping in mind the noble cause members of the Club did their bit and prepared delicious items like chocolate top cookies, cup cakes, cone cakes etc. and  put them on sale in order to collect funds for the education of financially deprived kids. All these items were homemade prepared by moms in their own kitchens with their own hands, while their kids helped in packaging." Adds Rati, "This way kids also imbibed that satisfaction comes from being part of a process that delivers services to people who desperately need them."
