He may be fa­mous for his voice and nu­mer­ous hits that he has de­liv­ered, but singer Ku­mar Sanu (left) wants to be known and re­mem­bered for his phil­an­thropic work. Adding to the char­ity work he does, the 57-year-old singer has now opened a pri­mary school for un­der­priv­i­leged chil­dren in the Cap­i­tal. “I think only ed­u­ca­tion can bring about a change in the mind­set of peo­ple and up­lift the un­der­priv­i­leged. Cur­rently, we have opened a pri­mary school in Karol Bagh and we are plan­ning to ap­ply for per­mis­sion till VIII,” says Sanu who has named the school, Ku­mar Sanu Vidya Nike­tan.

Talk­ing about the fa­cil­i­ties in the school, he says, “We will pro­vide uni­forms and books free of cost. Apart from this we will also pay an amount to the par­ents of the stu­dents ev­ery month to mo­ti­vate them to send their kids to school, in­stead of send­ing them to work.”
