A 25-year-old lady constable Guddan Chaudhary is popularly known as ‘Police wali madam’ (lady police officer) among the children. With an aim to provide free education to the under privileged children, Choudhary runs special classes on footpaths and streets after her duty-hours in Khurja, Bulandshahr district in Uttar Pradesh.
As quoted by few media publications, Guddan said, “I used to teach many unprivileged children even before I was posted to Khurja as a constable. I have been teaching these children here, since three or four months now. I believe that some children, who are deprived of education due to poverty, deserve equal progress. We all should take out a few hours from our mundane life in order to teach the children who come from low-income families.”
Posted in Khurja (Dehat) police station for the last six months, Chaudhary has now close to 24 students. Currently, she has applied for Adhaar cards for these children, which is the primary step to get admission in a government school.
“I devote a few hours after my duty hours, in order to impart knowledge to the children who are unable to afford a good education. Currently, I am seeking for their admission in a government school, I am urging the school principal to admit these children in her school and give them access to education,” she added.
Guddan spends 30 per cent to 40 per cent of her income on buying textbooks, pens, pencils and other stationary material required for the education of these children.
