Vivek Oberoi has previously extended his support to many causes he believes in. Now, the actor has decided to sponsor girls from his own NGO ‘DEVI’ (Development and Empowerment of Vrindavan Girls) for international specialized study programmes.
Vivek, who is currently shooting for his next film Great Grand Masti in Gujarat, will soon leave for the United States to tie-up with a few US colleges. These tie-ups will entitle girls from his DEVI, to pursue their education further in the USA. Since the actor too has studied in USA, he is aware of the procedures and decided to extend a helping hand.
Says a source, “Vivek is very impressed with the kind of progress the girls at DEVI are making with some showing immense potential. He wanted to provide them the opportunities he had while growing up and has decided to select 6 girls from the foundation every year to study in the US. Vivek has already started the process and will be travelling to the US in mid-July to complete the formalities”.
Says Vivek Oberoi, “Every girl child deserves the right to education, and I hope to help a few who reach their ultimate potential with some specialized programmes in the US.”
