This was followed by the Trust members, mentors, social activists & other guest educationists speaking to the children in great details to make use of their precious time & energy to succeed in life to become proud members of the society. Dr. S.N. Pasupalak, Vice-Chancellor, OUAT who presided over the valedictory session, eulogized the contributions of the Trust in enabling the disadvantaged children to become self-sufficient and positively contribute to the society.


The children responded with great enthusiasm promising their best efforts for espousing the cause of DIGJYOTI.
