Due to the novel coronavirus, people across the world have been locked inside their houses. Although none of us would have believed for such a day to come, here we are. While many of us are trying to make the most of our times at home, there are people out there struggling to get their daily necessities. At such a time, actor Vijay Deverakonda has come ahead to help the people in need with his ‘Middle Class Fund‘, an extension to his secret project.
Watch the trailer of his film, Geetha Govindam here:
Earlier on Sunday, the actor took to social media to make two special announcements. He spoke about the secret project that he had been working on since July 2019. Named ‘The Deverakonda Fund’, he aims to employ at least a lakh youngsters in his lifetime. After months of hard work, his team reached out to 650 people from rural areas and trained 120 of them to hone their skills. The first batch of 50 people are now ready for employment after the crisis resolves.
