Mizoram Class X toppers get aid, courtesy Indian-Australian man

 

An Indian-Australian man offered help to two poor bright students from Mizoram. The kind-hearted Sydney-based engineer donated a sum of INR 20,000 each to Lalrinnungi, who topped the Class X Mizoram Board exam results. She scored a total of 486 out of 500 and secured letter marks in mathematics, science, social science, English and Mizo. While, the other student is Given Lawmnakima Thiak, who scored 433 out of 500 marks (86.6%), earning a 'distinction' in the board exams.

 

A report of EastMojo says, the help from the philanthropist was handed over to the two children in the presence of their parents and St Joseph Higher Secondary School’s principal C Laltlansanga by Mizoram Journalists’ Association (MJA). The Indian-Australian, who preferred to remain anonymous, himself came from a poor family and well understood what a poor family has to go through to afford education. He believed his little offering will help these bright and hardworking students get a better education.

 

It is to note that these two students are born in an economically underprivileged family. Lalrinnungi is from Neihbawi near Sihphir village, 15-km away from Aizawl. Her parents earn a living out of selling vegetables on the roadside and rearing pigs. She also helped her parents sell vegetables during weekends and holidays to help them support her education.

Given Lawmnakima Thiak’s parents are famers, earning their living out of jhum cultivation. He helped his parents at jhum cultivation; he used to walk for more than 3 kms to his school from his hometown Bilkhawthlir, as his parents could not provide him the money for rickshaw or bus fare.

 

Lalrinnungi and Given Lawmnakima are currently studying in Class XI (Science stream) at St Joseph Higher Secondary School in Aizawl, free of cost.
