Sonu Sood on his Hearty Venture

On his aim to set up a scholarship trust for underprivileged, Sonu Sood highlighted, “I was getting so many requests from all over the country for school and college admissions, school fees, laptops, iPhones, etc. I was helping with all that. But I decided that the question of education must be addressed on a more permanent level. There are lots of students who can’t afford their fees in their second year in college and have to miss their exams. Sometimes they are not able to travel  from their homes to their places of education.”

Sood said that his team got 14,000 e-mails from students in-need across the country and has gone ahead with filtering their biodata according to their financial backgrounds and academic records including +2 exams. He has planned to select students from all walks of life and across several disciplines like Artificial Intelligence, Airlines, Animation, to name a few. Many organisations in India have lauded his noble endeavours to which Sood added, “Yes, my work is being acknowledged. But it is a very complicated process. It’s not about only getting them educated in a college. It’s about assuring their maintenance, food, hostel, travel, for the next five years. This scholarship scheme is not just to educate the students, it’s also an education for me.”

Sood’s noble efforts came into light especially during the lockdown when he helped thousands of migrants reach their native places by arranging free transportations and meals for them. From helping people get their bread and butter to assisting students in reaching their exam centres for NEET 2020, the actor has incredibly contributed towards lessening the plight of people struck the most by this lockdown. From the adopting three orphan children from Hyderabad to helping 85 years old ‘Warrior Aaji’ establish a martial arts training centre, Sonu Sood has left an undying impression on each and every heart of the country. 

Thus, scholarships by Sonu Sood are definitely going to help many in getting the right education. Stay tuned to Leverage Edu for more content around higher education, admission details, study abroad, CBSE notes, news updates and more!
