Indiasudar-KA team had partially setup the computer training center in August 2009 in Chikkakurugodu as part of the India Sudar Computer Shikshana Kendra Project.
Recognition of IS efforts:
We started in this district by providing notebooks and stationeries to Chikkakurugodu school in 2006. Since then, we have setup library, computer center while continuing to provide notebooks every year – an effort that has helped this school become the number one in this taluk segment and also one among the top five in the district. We have also grown over these years to support more than 10 schools with the total number of beneficiaries upwards of 1500, all from utterly backward segments of the district (See https://indiasudar.wordpress.com/category/ka-chikkarogudoo/)
In recognition of IS efforts over the last few years, Sri. Shivashankar Reddy, the honourable MLA of Gowribidanur presented a letter of appreciation and gratitude to India Sudar and also felicitated the IS volunteers. This was followed by cultural programmes and a meeting with the parents.
– Synopsys and Valtech for having provided excellent systems/laptops
– Azim Premji Foundation for providing the Educational/ Interactive software CDs and make this project a success.
– Special thanks to all volunteers for setting up and installation of the computers
We earnestly request you to continue your support for elevating educational standards of the underprivileged in rural segments.
