Emerson Teen Finishes His Eagle Scout Award

Samir Wadhwani, Eagle Scout candidate in Emerson Troop 67, has been collecting reusable water bottles for Children’s Hope Prayas, a small elementary school in Katpulti Colony, India, a village rife with poverty and remarkably unsanitary conditions.
Samir has been working with the principal of this school to supply 500 water bottles that allow the kids clean containers to drink from.  Samir approached schools, businesses, churches and temples throughout our community to help him reach this ambitious goal.  His project was to bring what he considers a small bit of support to a group of children living in very difficult conditions.  The Volunteer Center was pleased to help Samir in his outreach.
Eagle Scout is the highest level of service and achievement in the Boy Scouts.  Samir has worked throughout his years of scouting to attain this prestigious recognition.  Samir is committed to continue serving others.  “Service is a lifetime commitment which I will always honor.”
If you are looking for an Eagle Scout project or need help getting in touch with agencies that need help, please call the Volunteer Center of Bergen County at 201-489-9454.
