New Delhi: Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal and Deputy CM Manish Sisodia met philanthropist and actor Sonu Sood today to discuss the new Desh Ke Mentor initiative that the Delhi government is set to launch. The programme will help students of Delhi government schools find a mentor who helps them unlock their potential. Children will find answers to their career related questions by Mentors who sign up to be a part of the programme. The actor has agreed to be the face of the campaign.

As the face of the Desh Ke Mentor initiative, Sood has appealed to citizens across the country to step forward and support children’s education and take the nation to a brighter tomorrow.

During the Covid-19 pandemic, Sood stepped forward to help all those who reached out to him and was widely recognised for his humanitarian work. His Sood Charity Foundation has been helping thousands of deserving students achieve their educational and professional goals, whether through financial assistance or through its efforts to prepare students for a professional career. In order to ensure their continued schooling, the foundation has also prioritised financial assistance to children who have lost a parent/guardian to the deadly pandemic.

Praising Delhi government’s work in the field of education, Sood said, “I am impressed by the transformation in Delhi government schools in the past year. High quality education for all children, whether rich or poor, is the key to a brighter future for the country. We need to come together and do our share for nation building. I urge the youth of India to come be a part of this initiative.”

The actor is passionate about children’s education and believes in “har hath me kitab.” The actor was accompanied by his friend Karan Gilhotra, founder of Plaksha University at the meeting.

The Desh Ke Mentor initiative is a programme where Mentors will take out 10 minutes every week to guide the students. Kejriwal said, “We have worked very hard to transform Delhi’s government schools. Now we want to make education a people’s revolution. When young people across the country join our education revolution, no one will be able to stop India from becoming a global leader. We are delighted to have onboard Sonu Sood, who has inspired lakhs of youth across the country with his selfless services to the nation.”
