Every day, upon performing his duties as a senior section engineer with the Indian Railways, Sushil Kumar Meena ensures that he teaches a class of almost 330 students in the Indirapuram locality in Uttar Pradesh's Ghaziabad. His class is attended by children belonging to the underprivileged families which reside in the slums.
These children who have been attending the classes since 2018 usually work as ragpickers and spend their day browsing through heaps of wastes lying in unmarked dumping grounds.
Meena also provides cooked meals to these children with a belief that food can make these impoverished children understand the importance of education. Nirbhed Foundation, the non-governmental organisation [NGO] founded by Meena provides education to as many as 3,700 underprivileged children across the country.
