      Church to adopt Uttar Pradesh village
      (IANS)

      1 October 2006



      NEW DELHI — A Christian organisation here said yesterday it would
      adopt an economically backward village in Uttar Pradesh's Ghaziabad
      district, adjacent to New Delhi, to educate children and provide
      infrastructure facilities.


      St. Thomas Orthodox Church Society, a social organisation celebrating
      its silver jubilee this year, will spend at least Rs500,000 for
      education, socio-economic development and healthcare of the village
      every year, said Father P.A. Philip, chairman of the society.

      The society also sought cooperation from the district administration
      in identifying the most deserving village or area in Ghaziabad.

      "We feel it's our social responsibility as well as commitment to
      provide poor children and local people the basic civic, health and
      educational amenities free of cost," Philip said in a Press release.

      The society runs two schools in Ghaziabad with about 4,500 students.
      It also plans to organise a mega fete — Tarang 2006 — in Indirapuram,
      an upmarket area in Ghaziabad, to collect funds for the project.
