Hyderabad, Oct 5 (IANS) GMR Varalakshmi Foundation, the corporate social responsibility arm of GMR Group, has extended online and offline teaching support to government school students in the vicinity of Hyderabad airport in Shamshabad, at a time when the coronavirus pandemic has disrupted their education.
“While online classes have been started for 10th class students in a few government schools from villages around the Hyderabad international airport, offline mode has taken off through the study circle programme to teach the students for lower classes and those needing most attention,” said a statement.
The foundation formed a group of Vidya volunteers, trained to assist the students in learning, who will later also pick up some senior students from government schools to teach juniors as well in the study circles.
For online classes, the foundation has teamed up with ConveGenius (CG), a Delhi-based tech startup to conduct classes for 10th standard students.
“Online classes started in the month of August. These classes are helping more than 100 students who were shortlisted with the help of Vidya volunteers from Zilla Parishad Girls High School, Shamshabad, Zilla Parishad Boys High School and Zilla Parishad High School Mamidipally in Telangana,” said the statement.
CG developed an app for 10th standard students for online learning.
