A delegation from the Shyamala Gopalan Educational Foundation (SGEF) led by N Suresh Reddy met with the Vice President of the United States, Kamala Harris, to discuss the numerous charitable endeavours undertaken by the foundation in honour of her mother, Dr Shymala Gopalan.
N Suresh Reddy and his crew attended the holiday reception in Washington DC and extended their best wishes to Kamala Harris and Dough Emhoff — the Second Gentleman of the United States. The SGEF team detailed to them a slew of activities conducted in India to commemorate the Birth Anniversary of Dr Shyamala Gopalan.
Suresh Reddy, the founder of SGEF, explained various initiatives taken by the foundation. He mentioned that donors came out in large numbers to the SGEF’s mega blood donation camp as part of the week-long celebrations honouring Dr Shyamala Gopalan on her birth anniversary.
In addition, other community service projects were undertaken in honour of the event, including giving food, distributing blankets and winter clothing, and giving sarees to the town’s women sanitation employees. SGEF also has initiated a group insurance scheme for small-time transporters and auto drivers, in which a life cover of Rs 5,00,000 has been given to 500 families in the town. ‘The Tree for Life’ — SGEF’s mega plantation drive with an aim of planting one million saplings by Dr Shymala Gopalan’s next birth anniversary — has been a huge success.
The Vice President’s office appreciated N Suresh Reddy for assuming the mission and for the Foundation’s influential work, particularly Sri World School, which aims to revolutionise the education sector by providing unprecedented educational and infrastructure standards as one of the world’s most unique educational Projects.
Suresh Reddy expressed his happiness that his mission was recognised by so many people and vowed to work tirelessly to make quality education accessible to every Indian.
Dough Emhoff, JA Moore – South Carolina State Representative and SGEF’s advisory board member – and various senators and educationalists also attended the programme held at the Vice President’s residence in Washington DC.
