It is really exciting for children in primary grades to march off to the next grade classroom with new backpacks, books, crayons, pencils and other school supplies. AmritaCREATE, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, makes this wish possible for many rural children from economically- challenged families at 48 centers in 21 states across the country, through the Amrita RITE Project. Recently the program was implemented in the villages adopted by Mata Amritanandamayi Math as part of Kedarnath Flood Relief Project and 101 Village Project.
At a program organized at Guptkashi, Uttarakhand, new school bags and stationery items were distributed to five Amrita Education Centers at Rudrapur, Guptkashi, Banasu, Khumera and Kothera. The chief guest of the programme was Mr. K.S. Rana, Principal, Intermediate College, Guptkashi, who inaugurated the program by lighting the lamp. Other guests were Ms.Mamta Nautiiyal, Block Pramukh, Mr. Birendra Aswal, Pradhan, Nala, Mr. Madan Agrawal, Pradhan, Guptkashi, Mr. Kamal Singh, Block Panchayat member, Rudrapur and Pradhan, Rudrapur.
