Support Us In Shaping The Career Of 70+ Students Who Are Change Agents

Aakanksha VFABS is an NGO which is providing sponsorship for 70 students across Andhra Pradesh, Telangana and jharkhand. We provide these students with the fees, books, uniform and food.

For all these expenses we raise funds from the public. We are a registered society and we provide 80G benefit for our donors. All the students we sponsor are from the poor background ranging from kids who don't have both parents to families where kid's education has been neglected for years.

It was an initiative by my friends Ms. Madhavi Bandreddy, Ms. Anita Madhuri, Ms. Parvati Sridevi who were my colleagues in TCS in 2011 and me. My another friend Mr. Rajesh Battula joined us very soon. It was started by a common motive we had then - to give back to the society from which we have received a lot and are settled well in our lives (barring few personal problems that few of us are still facing).
The women behind this initiative are so resilient that they never took a back step despite facing harsh difficulties in their life and one girl is still facing the most difficult times that a person can face. But those difficulties didn't deter their conviction to sustain this organization.

We knew that students with financial difficulties may not concentrate on their studies and so we wanted to be their second set of parents who can support them when they need us the most. We provide not just financial support but also love and moral support. We mentor them, we guide them and we stand by them when they face any failures.

We started with one student of warangal District of Telangana and only five donors. But now we are supporting around 70 students under our sponsorship program and 300+ students in Rural government schools through our Digital AaSha project.

All in all we are impacting around 400 students and the same number of families so that they can have a bright future ahead.

Dear Supporter and Wellwisher,

Here I would like to update you on the progress of this cause.

It is already 3 weeks past the reopening of schools across India after the summer vacation. All our students are back to school with new books and uniform as well as new excitement. Meanwhile, we have involved them in other extra curricular activities as well.

1. Summer Recreational Tour

As a part of education, we take our students on a recreational tour every summer. This is a process to make students, from across the nation, meet and share their experiences with others.

We have taken our students on a tour to OOTY and nearby places. They had a glimpse of coffee plantation, visited the highest peak in peninsula - Dodabetta peak.
They had all the fun in water games as well.

















2. Swachh Bharat

When the spirit of swachatha is indoctrinated in to the minds of young kids, they don't differentiate the place as ours' or others'.

They simply see the filth as filth and just want to get rid of that. They take active steps, bend down plucking off the weeds, cleaning the surroundings, getting themselves dirty so that the place gets clean.

Here, our Aakanksha students were returning back from Ooty as a part of their annual recreational tour in their summer vacation. They stopped at a government primary school in a village in chittor district of Andhra pradesh to have their morning breakfast. They couldn't tolerate the filth and the weeds growing in the school surroundings.

They decided - "Clean it first. Then breakfast."

Result is sound and clear. A clean school surrounding and the teachers of that school feed these youngsters with eggs in their breakfast.
Tomorrow's citizens are responsible today itself. Are we responsible?

Dear Supporters,

Here is an update for you all.

Summer Camp
----------------------

The concept of summer camp has been urban centric for a very long period. Lack of public spaces and busy dual working families led to mushrooming of organizations running summer camps based on certain amount of fee per student.

Off late, some charity organizations started running free summer camps with the support of some media houses.

Whatever be the way, they have been helpful for students to involve in extra academic activities in the summer. They are helping students come together and bring our their extra hidden talents.

Trained teachers in art, calligraphy, crafts, music, dance etc are helping urban kids hone their talents and keeping these urban based students a step ahead.

This has been a privilege that many rural students could not afford. They have been spending their summer vacation in their own ways like swimming in ponds, Wells, visiting relatives etc in olden days. But now a days it's the mobile gadgets and TV that has occupied the time of the rural  students in their summer holidays. Extreme summers, dried up wells and distress migration of rural communities are making the students loose an opportunity to effectively use their summer vacation.

So, for the second time in a row, AaKanKsha is conducting a summer camp in our project village THIMMANAYUNIPETA, KOLIMIGUNDLA MANDAL, KURNOOL DISTRICT.

Last year, we have experimented with a computer course for around twenty students.

This year, along with our V25 Learning center students, we have been running a summer camp where students are being shown or being encouraged to try their hands on science experiments that their academic courses entails. Schools are lacking labs and so experiments are least encouraged. So, we thought of trying them at our learning center.

Apart from science experiments, we are teaching them art and crafts based on YouTube videos.

I think, this is the first time that students here are doing experiments and making some crafts.

They are not afraid of failure in the experiment, but curious to learn by experimentation.


Pic -  fun games in the evening.


Pic - different age groups of students involved in different activities.


Pic -  create making and some fun in between.


Pic - we work in teams.

They are curious to learn new things from YouTube and make the crafts on their own hands.


Thanks to our Project Digital AaSha, which helped us deploy some digital tools in our rural school to learn new things.
Thanks to our Project V25, which brought some young inquisitive minds to a place and build a community of change makers.

Thanks to all our donors and supporters with out whose support this may not be possible.

Their schools reopen in second week of June and our summer camp my end by the end of this month.
We plan to take our students on an entertainment trip in the first week of June if everything goes fine.
