Phek Town Youth Society (PTYS) and Phek Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PCCI) members visited the Destitute Government Residential Girls Hostel Phek, on September 2, after hearing of the dilapidated condition of the hostel.

A press release from PTYS press secretary, Kedupa Venuh claimed that the government had delayed funds to manage the hostel, also stating that it was learnt that the hostel was functioning without proper funds since August 2017.

According to Kedupa, the hostel is occupied by 50 residents aged 5 to 16 years, who have to eat only rice and dal (lentil) because of non-release of funds. It runs out of a rented SIRD building, the release also stated.

PTYS and PCCI gave the hostel several essential items like writing materials, washing and bathing materials, first aid kits, blankets, clothing, footwear, electrical appliances, groceries, pork etc. during the visit. The two organizations also interacted with hostel children and officials of district education under Sarva Shiksha Abhiyan (SSA) and held a fellowship service with the hostel students.

DC Phek, Orenthung Lotha and ADC Avelu also graced the event where Orenthung encouraged viable assistance for the students while the ADC narrated a pertinent anecdote of an underprivileged student whose hard work made him an IAS officer. Avelu also lauded the PTYS and PCCI for their effort to help the destitute students. 

In the fellowship, T. Samuel, district coordinator and Shevozo, assistant district coordinator also spoke about the difficulties faced in the functioning the hostel due to scarcity and extended profound gratitude to the PTYS, PCCI and the district administrators for  their concern.

Kuvechisa, vice president of PCCI and Neizote Venuh, president of PTYS, also spoke to the hostellers about educating themselves. They further implored the state government to release the pending funds for efficient functioning the hostel. Votalu, warden of the hostel pronounced a vote of thanks and shared her views about the circumstances of the hostel and students.

The press release also mentioned that Nuyi Hoshi, convenor Clean Green Operation also conveyed heartfelt gratitude to Phek Town Local Taxi Union for distributing dustbins for every corner of Phek town and clearing the waste daily to keep Phek Town clean and green.
