Telangana chapter of Kalam Bharat being inaugurated by the Hon’ble Vice President of India, Shri M Venkaiah Naidu.
Several surveys have pointed to the fact that there has been a noticeable decline in values and ethics among school students. This is a roadblock for the Vision 2020 of Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam where he dreamt of India which is an economic superpower fuelled by the youth of the nation. It is imperative to empower the human resources of the nation with the right tools.
This is how the idea of Kalam Bharat – A program that aims to inject the values of Dr. Kalam into the students and make them ‘Kalams’ tomorrow, was born. This is a 15-week and 100 hours school adoption cum community service program is to empower the ignited minds of the nation with the ability to dream impossible, knowledge of technologies of tomorrow and moral values.
Telangana chapter of this program was run in collaboration between the Department of School Education, Government of Telangana, Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam Centre and Yuva Thirang.
Under this program, over 500 undergraduate students were trained and dispersed in 252 schools across four districts of Telangana where they conducted classroom sessions as auxiliary teachers.
