Shahdara youth join hands with police to keep district clean
NEW DELHI: Over 200 underprivileged youth joined hands with Shahdara District police on Sunday to keeping their surroundings clean.
These youth, between the ages of 17 and 21 years, will also be given skill training under the Delhi Police's Yuva initiative, so that they can earn their livelihood with dignity in future.
"Students joined us in cleaning in and around the DCP office campus and planted trees," said Deputy Commissioner of Police (Shahdara) Nupur Prasad.
Police sources said these youth could not complete their studies due to unavoidable circumstances; hence, they will be given training for mobile, computer repairing etc.
The youth belong to different areas in Shahdara, like Seemapuri, GTB Nagar. On Monday, they will take a pledge to keep their surroundings clean.
Earlier, in South East district, 300-400 girls were trained by Delhi Police in sports. "We engaged them in netball and formed many teams to provide them self-defence training. As a result, the girls are giving their best in the sport and now there is no fear among them," said a police official.
In addition to sports, acting and dance have also come as a boon for youngsters who were earlier addicted to drugs and now they were rejuvenating their life.
