In a momentous event that reverberated with the spirit of learning and transformation, Vibha, in collaboration with LeapForWord (LFW), ushered in a new chapter of empowerment through the launch of the Library Project at Paderu division in the ASR district on November 18, 2023. This visionary initiative was graced by the esteemed presence of Mandal Education Officers, teachers, and key stakeholders who gathered to celebrate the power of literacy and education.
A Vision Transcending Boundaries
The Vibha-LFW English Literacy Program has been an integral part of Paderu division’s educational landscape since 2021-22. This groundbreaking initiative not only promotes English literacy but also embodies a larger vision of empowering young minds to unlock the doors of opportunity through education.
Empowering Active Educators
The inauguration of the Library Project was a culmination of dedication and commitment displayed by active teachers across the 11 mandals of Paderu division. These educators, champions of innovative teaching techniques, were meticulously selected based on their consistent engagement, dedication, and the remarkable impact they’ve fostered in their classrooms over the past three years.
In recognition of their pivotal role in driving change, these passionate educators were honored with a collection of Library books and a bag, symbolizing the tools to nurture a culture of reading and exploration within their school premises.
Embracing Inclusivity: A Visionary Partnership
The ceremony witnessed the gracious presence of the Girl Child Development Officer (GCDO), underscoring the inclusive nature of this program. Her call to extend this transformative initiative to the Kasturba Gandhi Balika Vidyalayas (KGBVs) in Paderu echoes the program’s commitment to reaching every corner, ensuring no child is left behind in the pursuit of education and enlightenment.
Celebrating Excellence: Recognizing Achievement
As a testament to acknowledging excellence, Master Ravindra, who secured the 4th position in the previous year’s Word Power Championship (WPC), was felicitated by the Vibha team. His achievement not only reflects individual prowess but also stands as an inspiration for all young learners to strive for excellence in their educational journey.
A Gathering of Change-Makers
The unveiling ceremony was graced by the presence of key figures from the Education Department, including 9 Mandal Education Officers (MEOs), the GCDO, and an assembly of dedicated teachers, totaling 40 individuals. The Vibha team, led by T. Veeranarayana, Program Manager (South), and the esteemed representatives from LFW—Mr. Chaitanya, Ms. Chandana, Mr. Prashanth, Mr. Vasanth, and Ms. Rukmini—stood united in their commitment to catalyze educational transformation.
A Pathway to Empowerment
