Delhi’s 17-year-old Muskaan Chhibber inspires us. She is the founder of an NGO ‘Samarpan’ that provides free education to the street kids.

Muskaan told The Better India, “It all began three years ago when I started working with an NGO called Samarpan, in Vasant Kunj, Delhi. This was soon after I started Class 10. I was working as a volunteer and was teaching kids of varying ages from underprivileged backgrounds. But the thought that there are many such children out there who are deprived of education because of lack of resources was really saddening, and that was when I decided that I will work for the society in some way or the other.”

Not only this, but the young girl is also working for the betterment of the needy cancer patients and Mother Nature. She began with a community-based environmental campaign in Australia called ‘Clean up the World.’ Later, she set up her own organisation called ‘Nurture Nature.’ Under this, she organises cleanliness drives and charity events across Delhi and educates people about the importance of keeping their surroundings clean.

She further described, “Our work is based on three fundamental pillars: education, cancer awareness, and the environment. The first child whom we helped in school registration was named Rahul. His story was such that it motivated other kids to join the school as well. Being the eldest son of the family, he has been the only earning member after his father’s death. This was why he had to give up his education. But we registered him in an open school and a weekly tutorial centre, so he can get a good education while working and helping his family as well.”

Isn’t she one helluva teen?
