Support 'AaKanKsha' in promoting Digital Education in Rural India

I would like to support "Digital AaSha" project of AaKanKsha VFABS. My love towards my country lies in my wish to make the dreams of 600+ rural students of India come true.

'Digital Aasha' is the project of AaKanKsha VFABS, an NGO striving to promote quality education for the less privileged kids of India, under which around 600+ kids of Rural India will be provided with functional digital literacy.

These 600+ kids are from the government run schools which lack the basic facilities to help those kids realize their dreams of availing access to the digital education.

Digital Aasha is an unique project which aims at digital empowerment of the students as well as teachers with functional digital literacy. Under this project students will be provided with the digital education with the state of the art functional digital lab as well as digital content that would be tuned according to the academic syllabus.


In the later phases, this project aims to fight the teacher shortage in the rural government run schools by connecting the urban based volunteers to those schools via internet tools like skype.

The genesis of the project lies in efficient resource utilization. Government of Andhra Pradesh had invested heavily in promoting e-literacy, in 2008, in rural government schools. But the very basic nature of utter disregard towards the public assets made the infrastructure eat dust as the government ended its budgetary allocation from 2011.

"Digital AaSha" would like to get the installed infra functional with few repairs and modifications and give the benefit of digital education to those million minds in rural government schools.

Action Steps of the project include -

1. Getting the minor repairs to the computers.
2. Buying new computers where there is shortage of PCs.
3. Restoring the power connection to schools as well as provide power backup
4. Preparing/Collecting the digital content in vernacular medium for the benefit of the school students.
5. Appointing the full time/part time Computer Tutor to train the students as well as the teachers on the functional digital literacy.
6. In the later phases, to connect urban volunteers with the school students via Skype and other internet tools.
7. Providing the fully equipped schools with digital tools like LED TV and Projector for the fuller utilization of the lab and digital content.

It is expected that it may cost around Rs.1Lakh to Rs.1.25Lakhs per school for two complete academic years.

I could see "Digital Aasha" would be a revolutionary idea in filling the gaps persisting in the rural government schools.

This would be our second school under this project. This particular school is filled with 120+ students whose parents are mainly daily wage earners.

Digital AaSha will help these rural students access to digital tools to enhance their learning efforts. This project will help us better utilize the existing government resources with minimum possible financial and physical efforts. This project also helps us in utilizing the digital projector in a better way than ever. Digital Projector was contributed by the local villager. Project Digital AaSha would become the final step to make this school completely smart augmenting the efforts of the teachers to improve the skills and learning outcomes of the students of a very remote village in Kurnool district.

Your contribution will surely bring a positive change in the learning outcomes of the students of this school.

Thanks for your contribution and patience. We hope to fulfill every promise we made while launching this project.


Thanks,
V Sai Vamsi Vardhan,
Founder and First Volunteer,
