VISAKHAPATNAM: With a motto to provide books and education to students in rural areas, the Rotary Club, Visakhapatnam, launched a state wide event ‘India Literacy Mission’. The initiative will have the Club collect books from Rotarians and others and distribute them to children in the country. Minister of Human resource Development Ganta Srinivasa Rao released the poster of the programme here Monday.

Speaking on the occasion, Ganta appealed to all people in the state to participate in the India Literacy Mission by donating their old books to the Rotary Club to make the state illiteracy-free by 2017.

Under the ‘Happy School’ project, the Rotary Club aims at collecting around 10 lakh books, from 1st standard to 10th standard, and make better use of them by establishing libraries in schools in rural areas. Picture books, comic books, reference books, drawing books, Atlas, English books and all other essential books would be collected under this project.

MLA (North) P Vishnu Kumar Raju, Rotary Club Visakhapatnam secretary R Rama Krishna Rao and other Club bearers took part in the event.
