Immensely impressed with the hands-on training the communication interns have been giving to the teachers of the schools benefitting from the first phase, she encouraged the program to adopt more schools into its regular roll, so that the digital literacy is achieved at a grassroots level.
Appreciating the concerted NRI involvement at developing these digital classrooms, she was eager to propose a launch date for the second phase of installations so that the benefits of this scheme can be speedily reaped by more children. The schedule for a fast-tracked implementation has been prepared and an installation date is thus expected to be forwarded to us the School Education Department of Andhra Pradesh anytime from now!
Shri.

Discussing the pilot projects with Shri Komati, the Commissioner, and the Joint Commissioner Shri. Vara Prasad Garu agreed to put their best efforts in taking the project ahead.
The aim is to work on solutions that will fruitfully preserve the dignity of the last rites that ought to be observed for the deceased in rural areas despite every odds that might challenge this initiative. The department was extremely happy to also receive a cheque of six lakh rupees for the construction of burial grounds at the Paritala village, Kanchikacherla Mandal, in Krishna district from the Special Representative for North America.
It is therefore hoped that the projects will run smoothly and continue to expand for the rich benefit of all the people across Andhra Pradesh.
