How Sonu Sood Gave This Village the Gift of Connectivity
Students have to no longer climb trees to catch mobile signals.
Until some time back, children of Dapana village in Haryana’s Morni had to climb trees so they could get mobile signal for their online classes.
When actor Sonu Sood learnt of this from a video doing the rounds on social media, he was determined to change things for the better. He discussed the issue with his friend Karan Gilhotra to see what could be done to help the students. Karan then travelled to the village and got in touch with Airtel to check the feasibility of installing a mobile tower there. Given that the village is located in a hilly area, there were several challenges involved.
After multiple rounds of recce and fieldwork, Airtel finally installed a tower in the village. The availability of strong network has greatly benefited the residents of Dapana. Most importantly, children of the village are now able to study online without any interruptions.
