  •  “Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself” : John Dewey


Every year at the beginning of the Academic calendar, Bellevision, Dubai gets several requests from schools as well as from economically backward students and their parents asking monetary help to continue their studies.  There are many needy students who aspire to pursue higher education in Commerce, Engineering, Medical, Technical and Nursing courses. In spite of their dreams and aspirations, their economic status do not allow them to continue such specialized studies.  Also many parents ask for help who do not have any income to send their children even to primary school which results in sending their children to work at younger age.



Bellevision has been supporting economically weaker families to help their children to pursue higher education as well as basic education since the past 10 years. Bellevision considers it as a moral responsibility to support in educating the economically backward and needy students as the knowledge they gain today through formal education will enhance their lives and they can live a better life. Every year Bellevision committee members voluntarily contribute the amount and also seek help from generous people to realize this project.  Bellevision makes sure that the monetary support reaches only the genuine students through proper scrutiny of requests and endorsement by the Parish Priest.


The amount Bellevision contributes every year to this noble cause is Rs. 200,000/- (Rupees Two lakhs) approximately. It is becoming quite difficult to seek help from the committee members every year.  As inflation has been on the rise consistently over the years and the cost of education has been increasing in India, the low income families find it extremely difficult to send their children to school as well as higher studies.


Keeping the above said reasons in mind, Bellevision has started an Education Fund last year with a plan to raise Rs. 5,000,000/- (Rupees Fifty Lakhs) so that the interest earned from this fund can be utilized for education of needy.


The amount collected will be deposited in the specially created “Education Support Fund” account under the name of “Bellevision Global” and the amount earned through interest will be sent directly to the Principal, Head Master and to the needy student families through the Parish Priest so that the amount will be utilized properly.  Names of all those who contribute for the “Education Support Fund” will be published in the webportal


The amount can be credited to the following bank account with an intimation through email to

Instead of sending personal emails about the income and expenditure, if they publish on the website, i think more support will come for this fund.

1. Needy Students Fund that I referred to my comment: The Principal of St. Lawrence PU College, Fr. Sequeira, furnished Corpus, Income and Disbursal Details in an email to me. I applaud Fr. Sequeira publicly for his gesture. 2. Mr. Elias D Souza on behalf if Bellevsion Team in an email to me has further clarified on diverse goals involved in Project 50 and Needy Students Fund. I appreciate BV on their gesture. I wish Porject 50 well.

Even if our priests are honorable, having checks and balances are essential. I am more comfortable with direct support to the needy students than through trusts. For me, a social security FD in student as first name, a corpus of 1.50 lakh generates annual schooling expenses of a student, while the corpus remains with me for rolling over to others once the students graduate. I also feel those students who got the charity benefits should return the favors by instituting similar funds to sponsor. Since these are my personal choices, I request readers not to be influenced my these and do according to their conscience and goodwill. But do charity for sure.

Individuals and parishioners associations in the Middle East are generous in contributing to causes at home. Priests from our diocese visit gulf capitals frequently to solicit funds for church and school buildings infrastructure. Lay trustees of orphanages and other charitable trusts knock on our doors too. Saying NO is a tough act. Emotions and dakxetnn matter. Frequent calls for contributions has caused donor fatigue. The lukewarm response to fundraising attempt for building homes for poor in commemoration of 125 year jubilee of the diocese is an example. I can understand predicament of BV committee. We, Pamboorians in Doha had to shelve our own initiative to create a Needy Students Fund due to poor response. Hence, I wish BV good luck because the 5 million target is stupendous. I urge wide participation by BV readers. There already exists a Needy Students Fund in High school raised two years ago, my opinion is that fund should be refurbished and administered transparently, publishing its audited books of accounts.

Here I quote the beautiful words of Mother Teresa" If we cannot love the person whom we see, how can we love God, whom we cannot see " Yes God has given us enough to use and plenty to share and what we need is our kind heart. It is also said that in giving we find more happiness than receiving. Education is a basic need of us all and due to unavoidable circumstances many cannot afford to educate their children. Please let us not ask parents for reasons WHY but let us say to ourselves Yes, I must do something these unprivileged children, my little support will lift them and make them stand on their own feet. let us unite and contribute to this Devine cause be it small or big, give and we will receive abundantly from above. Let us join our hands with Bellevision and bring smiles on many faces. Bellevision you are quietly doing many charities and this is one is more noble one. I am sure our supporters/readers will not leave us helpless. All the best

Project 50: Education Support Fund to support the less fortunate. I think it is an awesome idea that Bellevision is becoming involved in this noble cause to raise funds to the needy children to support them for higher education and shape their future in terms of providing the "right to a good education" for a bright future. Funding student's fees for a year in part, or in whole or for that matter any amount of donation for this fund, You will be helping them change their life and connecting those under privileged ones to prepare them for a bright future. I am sure all of us should contribute for this noble cause to help Bellevision to achieve the target to help the needy students of our Institutions in Moodubelle.

Education is best gift in life. Ever since I was a little boy growing up in Moodubelle my parents instilled in me a desire to help those less fortunate than myself. I have been very lucky enough to take advantage of opportunities for a good education and it is the key to my success in life so far. I believe whoever is educated; finds life simpler than those who are not educated; and an educated person can be a job creator and not a job seeker. Whoever gets it must use it effectively because there are many people who need your support. By doing that you are helping a needy student to get better education and make him a better person. contd...
