Vision 2026 sponsored Nargis Naseem for higher studies who lost her house in Delhi Riots
Delhi: Nargis Naseem, a student of a government school in Northeast Delhi, who cracked the CBSE 12th board exams scoring 62% marks despite losing her home and all her books in the February 2020 Delhi riots, has been sponsored by ‘Vision 2026’, the flagship project under the Human Welfare Foundation, Delhi, for her higher education under its ‘Meritorious Girls Scholarship’ scheme.
Riots broke out in Northeast Delhi on February 24, when Nargis was on her way to school for her physical education examination. Accompanied by a relative she returned home safely but her house was burnt down the next day. With the home, she lost all books too. The family moved to a small rented space in the nearby Chandu Nagar, an area where many victims took shelter.
The burnt house was renovated by the Jamaat-e-Islami Hind under its Delhi Relief and Rehabilitation project.
The Women Education & Empowerment Trust (TWEET), an NGO exclusively working for the empowerment of women, associated with the Human Welfare Foundation, has offered to take care of the guidance and support for Nargis higher studies. TWEET will provide financial assistance and guidance until she completes her studies.
‘Vision 2026’ is playing a lead role in the rehabilitation of the victims of the Delhi riots. Vision 2026 extends support victims by renovating damaged houses, shops, and commercial establishments, providing financial support for the purchase of stocks for shops and raw materials for manufacturing units. Also providing taxi vehicles, E-Rickshaws, motorcycles, cycles, 3-4 wheel carts, etc. to restart a fresh life.
Orphans and widows of the persons murdered in the riots have been sponsored under the Vision 2026 project. Orphans will be provided education support until they complete their education and their widowed mothers will get financial support to take of their families.
