Daan Utsav 2017: Why and How Can You Gift Education for Students?

By Malavikka

This is that time of the year when the country celebrates Daan Utsav, the joy of giving week. Every year October 2 to October 8 is desecrated as a giving festival in India for donating money, time, resources or skills to the needy. This is not hosted by any brand, which makes it an interesting event for individual contributions. Now, the big question is, how and why is education the most deserving donation that you could offer?

4 reasons why education is the best to give

Here are why a student can fulfill that eligibility criterion. If you sponsor for the education of a student:

  • It empowers him or her to become better and independent than just receive and stay dependent on someone for their needs
  • Educating a student can help them earn money and educate another student
  • The gift of knowledge is something more than any other donation you could have made
  • It makes the people and the place around you a better one with enlightenment and knowledge
