This event took place on 27 June 2019 near the central cafeteria of the ONGC’s DUB Green Building .Being a socially responsible corporate; ONGC Delhi has centrally displayed the creative artwork of the young artists from the NGO ‘Institute for the Handicapped and Backward People (IHBP)’. Dr. Alka Mittal appreciated the efforts of the students displayed in the mesmerizing paintings and applauded the efforts of the NGO for giving them a platform to showcase their talent.
IHBP conveyed its heartiest thanks to Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Limited (ONGC) Mahanadi, Bengal-Purnea & Andaman Basin (MBA Basin) for being a benevolent partner and partnering ONGC in the “Child Sponsorship Project” since July 2013. In the beginning, ONGC started this Project under its CSR activities with 50 differently-abled students. With the resounding success of this Project, ONGC has now increased the number of beneficiaries and is currently sponsoring 100 beneficiaries under this project.
IHBP has been successfully implementing the “Child Sponsorship Project” sponsored by ONGC as per MoU. The parents and guardians of the students are satisfied with the progress and development of their children and eager to send their children to school regularly, and parents of other needy and differently-abled children of the nearby area are willing to admit their children to school. This project has created lots of positive thoughts and belief. Differently-abled students under this Project have appeared in the Madhyamik Pariksha (Class X) since 2017 under W.B.B.S.E. alongside the usual students, and more than 90 per cent students have successfully passed which is a matter of pride. All the above would not have been possible without the partnership and support of ONGC, as mentioned by the NGO officials.
