" The beautiful thing about learning is that no one can take it away from you" - B.B .King

The project addresses some of the basic objectives towards giving the indispensable requirements of quality education to a local school in a small rural village of Andhra Pradesh, 100 km south of Vishakhapatnam.
Lingapuram is a small village with a community of farmers often referred to as “Anna daatas”- the givers of food. Besides lacking many basic amenities that may be considered essential or minimum requirements in other parts of the world, the one thing that sticks out like a sore thumb is its one and only elementary educational facility and its amenities and the quality of education.
The only elementary school for Lingapuram is a home for 137 students from 1st to 5th grade. It has been serving for over 60+ years. Most of the students are poor and underprivileged kids from nearby villages.
Interestingly even in 21st century, after 60 years, it is still the same school without basic amenities. No Electricity, toilets, book shelves and food is supplied by government but there is no place to eat or prepare food (kitchen with palm leaves), shattered buildings everywhere. The government funds barely support school supplies and teaching aids.
The project consists of completely adopting the school from a basic renovation of the facility to creating a library system to encourage kids to explore and adventure. Some of the things planned in the next 12 month calendar year are as follows:
• Basic Renovation
• Clean up and restoration of the playground
• Creating and funding the uniform system
• Building a kitchen
• Providing teaching aids to the school
• Creating Library
• Providing books and other aids to the library
• School supplies
• Creating and funding after school programs
• Creating and funding a scholarship structure
• Access to information with internet along with few computers if possible
Support Education at the grassroots level by adopting the School at Lingapuram and provide educational resources. Also provide after school support.
