Monu is a keen writer and also actively participates in quiz competitions. He has several prizes to his credit in these activities.

He has made designs and painted the classrooms of one of our centres under the Creative Project Showcase, ’I Can’. He also enjoys playing badminton and football.

In the words of Mrs. Prajapati, ‘’Had it not been for Vidya & Child, my children would have received no guidance outside of school as neither are we educated nor can we afford a tutor. The teachers at Vidya & Child often meet me and the only question they ask is, “How are the children doing?” This kind of personal involvement is what causes our bond to strengthen. What more does a parent want?’’, she says.
