Pre-Aug 2006 News Details
The inauguration of Jeeyar Gurukulam (School) Hostel for 100 students at Allampalli went well. The District Collector Smt. Sudha Rani felt happy that a great work is being done by VTSeva at Allampalli in the most needed place of the remote forests. Her first observation was “The toilets for children are so good. We are not able to provide like this even in our city hostels.” Dignitaries like DEO and MRO (Mandal Revenue Officer) accompanied her. The Collector said “I wish we brought some of our teachers to witness this function and see how well disciplined these children are and how well they are chanting the slokas and prayer songs”.
The Collector initially wasn’t in favor of building these schools in remote areas due to lack of accessibility and Government funding. Though reluctant initially, the Collector was drawn by the spirit of VTSeva volunteers, the proposed plan and HH Sri Swamiji’s vision, she approved the project.
The Collector was so impressed and amazed with this noble deed that she announced, a Power Transformer will be provided at the school to improve power supply and a Water Tank for storage purposes. She also promised to do her best to improve the approach road which was just laid by the villagers during the school construction. She toured the school and hostel, even joined the tribal children for a meal and also joined serving meal to the children.
