- They work to educate children with hearing and speech disabilities
As is tradition, Amitabh Bachchan organized an emotional Karamveer special episode of Kaun Banega Crorepati 12 on Friday. Mr. Bachchan welcomed social workers Gyanendra Purohit and his wife Monica Purohit to the program. They are the founders of Anand Service Society, an NGO that has been working for the education and improvement of children with hearing and speech disabilities for 22 years. Speaking with Bachchan, Gyanendra Purohit revealed that his brother’s tragic death inspired him to do something meaningful for children with hearing and speech problems. The couple revealed that they started their initiative with only five children and almost no money: they had to provide food, which they gradually paid for.
In their 22 years of social work, Gyanendra Purohit and his wife Monica Purohit have taught more than 25,000 children with hearing and speech disabilities, and helped more than 5,000 of their students establish an independent livelihood. Mr Bachchan, who was taken aback by the couple’s motivational story, continued to applaud their efforts throughout the episode. Bachchan said their contribution to society is “amazing” and that the stories they shared on the show will raise awareness among viewers of the show.
Gyanendra Purohit and Monica Purohit earned Rs 25 lakh on Friday’s episode of the show, which will go towards the betterment of their NGO.
