This project will have emphasis on "learning" rather than mere "teaching". Education should be a matter of pleasure for the student. It is the positive, congenial atmosphere which enables learning process. It is the involvement of teachers, Village Education Committee, Gram Panchayat and other people’s organization that ensures good education. A sense of belonging, ownership and concern for quality education of their children among the parents are essential prerequisites for making the school strong and dynamic.
OBJECTIVES:
# To improve the quality of education
# To inculcate aptitude for learning in the student
# All round development of the child
# To strengthen the teachers and their ability to teach and equip them better
# To improve school infrastructure
Vasavya Society for Rural Development (VASORD). Under a central government scheme Kaakanoor was one of 11,000 villages in India to receive the benefit of a watershed program. The program bore fruit after VASORD's involvement over the last four years, and it has brought prosperity to the village of 2000 people by making agriculture sustainable once more.

VASORD has worked closely with the people of Kaakanoor by introducing them to non-conventional energy resources, such as biogas, as well as an afforestation program. In the course of implementing these schemes successfully VASORD has gained the trust of the villagers and has demonstrated its commitment to convert Kaakanoor into a model village in the area. Their new mission is to improve the conditions in the local government school. This school provides education in classes I to VII under the AP State syllabus to about 300 children.
