Talking with TOI, Savani said, “I saw a girl of our Indian soldier crying on the television saying that her father had told her to study hard and become successful. At that very moment, I decided to sponsor the children of the martyrs killed in Uri attack.” Savani added, “Along with education, we will also provide the hostel and other accommodation to the children wanting to study with PP Savani International school.” The PP Savani group has been providing free education to fatherless girls from across the state since last many years.
