Jammu, January 10: Jammu Girl, Mishika Mittal, a student of Class 11th of KC Public School, has brought laurels by winning an internationally acclaimed 'King Constantine Medal' for her outstanding and kind acts of service during Covid-19.
She received the award in a virtual function organised by the school after receiving the award via courier from Round Square’s Headquarter at Windsor, UK, due to covid restrictions.
She has always taken active participation in community service.
During 2020, with the rising Covid 19 global pandemic, not everyone could afford masks and sanitizers. Mishika along with the school Service team took the initiative to make more than 400 masks and presented them to SSP Sandeep Mehta (Operations/Cyber Crime Jammu) to distribute among the poor. Several in-school online workshops were conducted to make homemade sanitizers which were then donated to the domestic helpers.
She is also a part of community kitchen. For the past 6 years, with the assistance of her family members, she has organized various ‘langars’ for the daily wage workers on a monthly basis through which they are able to feed 800-900 people per month.
“Mishika has always been a bright student, not only in academics but in her kind acts and ideas of doing something for the society. We are proud of her and wish her a brightest future,” said Mrs. Sonia Thakur, the Round Square Representative of KC Public School.
In 2021, Mishika Mittal started a campaign: ‘Support for Tomorrow’ with the aim to mobilize many students to come forward to help children in need by spending quality time with them and make them feel special. On the occasion of Rakshabandhan she took the first step to take this campaign forward by utilizing Rakhi money to bring sweets, stationary kits and Rakhis to the girls at Nari Niketan Aasharam, RS Pura, Jammu.
“I am honored to receive such a prestigious award. I always love doing something for the society and will keep doing that in future,” said Mishika Mittal, The awardee of King Constantine Medal.
“I am thankful to Round Square, UK for this honour and especially to my mentors, Teachers and parents for supporting me for my work,” she added.
There are many other activities done by this Jammu Girl like ‘Maitri’, a fundraising marathon to raise enough funds to purchase winter essentials for underprivileged living in a shelter home in Jammu. She also took initiative to mobilize students to come forward to help the needy by giving rations and other essential items from their pocket money.
Mishika also initiated the idea of organizing langar for school support staff. 55 Kceans joined hands in contributing their share from their pocket money for the cause. With the funds thus collected, langar meal was prepared in the school mess.
