Award and Recognition
Honoured by Honourable President of India Ram Nath Kovind
Honourable President of India watched Karamveer episode of KBC in which Sylvester was featured and he expressed his desire to meet Sylvester and his “angels”.It’s the first time ever that an NGO was invited on the instructions of the President himself. Prior to the invitation credentials of My Angels Academy were duly vetted in all respects by the concerned departments of President’s office.
On 16th Feb 2021 special buses of Govt of India ferried 40+ angels of “My Angels Academy” from Vikaspuri to Rashtrapati Bhawan premises for the inauguration of a football field. During the inauguration, Angels made a beautiful rangoli of flowers, did anapana (Meditation), Yoga which was followed by an exhibition match. Sylvester got the rare privilege of receiving the president when he got down from his chariot. The honourable President had words of appreciation for Sylvester’s efforts. He personally met all the children and encouraged them. Later at the event, Sylvester was honoured and handed over souvenirs by Sr. IAS officers from President’s office. Angels were also given a special exclusive guided tour of Mughal gardens.
For the past many years “angels” of “My Angels academy” train in a public ground in Vikaspuri in the wee hours of the morning. There was a time when people from surrounding locality considered it “incorrect” for children from slums to play in a public park. Even now from time to time some issues keep on cropping up. So it was a matter of great honour and pride when these same “angels ” along with their Sylvester ‘bhaiya “were invited by none other than Honourable President of India to play at Rashtrapati Bhavan football ground. What would you call this, sheer luck, miracle, destiny? or is it the fact that compassion and willpower of even one person can transform the luck, the destiny of so many children and create miracles for them. Imagine what all miracles can happen and how many destinies can be changed if all of us join Sylvester ‘bhaiya’ efforts to create angels for all of us.
