Participating in the Times Group’s Educational Technology Summit
Eight boys from AIM for SEVA Free Student Hostel in Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh participated in the ‘educational Technology Summit Series’ organized by The Times of India Group in collaboration with Greenbery World School . The 2-day program where several schools participated , was designed to bring out creativity and encourage innovative thinking in children. The teachers were also motivated to participate along with the children. The aim was to sensitize them towards environmental and social issues.
New Solar Panels were installed at the AIM for SEVA Free Student Hostel for Boys in Ghaziabad, Uttar Pradesh to generate power . This has helped create awareness on Solar Power not just among our students but also the villages they come from. When they go back home, they share stories with their family and friends. They tell them the concepts and benefits with respect to sustainable living, energy saving and recycling.
Making Computer Education Accessible
Cognizant Foundation supported AIM for SEVA with the construction of a computer laboratory at the Semmangudi High School in Sembangudi, Tamil Nadu. Sundaram Fasteners Ltd. and AIM for USA contributed 20 desktops along with a set of 20 chairs and desks for the students. There are 478 student enrollments in Grade 11 and 12 this year. Computer classes are part of the weekly schedule. These children come from economically deprived back- grounds with many of them being first generation learners. But that has not stopped them from aspiring high. Access to the digital world through proper computer education would help such children prepare for their life post college and provide them with better employment opportunities in future.
