VIJAYAWADA:‘Badi Runam Theerchukundam’ campaign, launched by Sarva Siksha Abhiyan, is gaining momentum across the State, especially from the schools in Krishna district.
The well established and successful people who have studied in government schools are writing to the school students and inspiring them through their letters.The motive of Badi Runam Teerchukundam is to give an opportunity to students to give back to the school by means of donation that will be further utilised for arranging infrastructure and other requirements of the schools.
People who have studied in government schools and are well placed in life can help develop their alma mater for future generations. Apart from the donations to the schools, people are also being exhorted to write letters and spread inspiration among the students. As of now, hundreds of letters are pouring in various schools by former students of those schools who are well established.
Donors can specify the purpose of the donation. The names of the persons who donated the amount or material will be documented and uploaded in the website with details of expenditure.
The State Project Director will guide on where and how to spend based on the request made by the donors and review expenditures incurred against each of the donations.
“The programme is really good as it is a great opportunity for the people who have passed out to develop their school. Through this, we are expecting a good amount of public fund and with that we can develop the schools with the best infrastructure, library and many other things,” said N Baskar Rao, Principal of a government school.
