The Prajapita Brahmakumaris in Pound Lane, Willesden, London, hosted an online event and steered by Brent students for studying the effects of the coronavirus epidemic on their peers and fellow students, on Nov 11, 2020.

The event is hosted by Sister Jayanti, European Director of Brahma Kumaris and involves a panel discussion, chaired by Cllr Ketan Sheth, chair of Brent Council’s community and wellbeing scrutiny committee.

Joining them are 11-year-old Dhruti Patel from Preston Park Primary School, Dillon Donnelly Trimble, a 15-year-old pupil at Harlesden’s Newman Catholic College, Tonna Ezeajughi, 16-year-old chair of Brent Youth Parliament, and Rithvik Gudlavalleti, a student at the Brahma Kumaris World Spiritual University.

Cllr Sheth said: “While young people are presumed, largely, to have avoided the worst health impacts of the coronavirus, the pandemic has affected them severely in many different ways.”

The Brahmakumaris have undertaken numerous campaigns related to mental health issues such as de-addiction programs, highlighting the need of counselling for children in schools, counselling support for cancer patients, meditation programmes for prisoners in jail.
