“With an aim of adding a layer of plumage to our little nestlings, Naugam Military Station, ever steadfast in tending to the needs of the Awaam, opened a Sadbhavana School for the underprivileged children of the nomadic Bakarwal & Gujjar tribes of Kashmir presently residing in the dhoks of Ganpatri, to whom, even the basic educational facilities are a distant reality, given their background”, as per an army official.

“ The objective of imparting basic elementary education to the budding gems of Kashmir is to empower them to lead a better life and to contribute to the development of this beautiful country. Currently 45-60 children are reaping benefits of this goodwill gesture extended by Naugam Military Station with the numbers likely to increase in coming days”, said the official.
