Asha Chennai’s Project Deepam was featured in the September 24-30 edition of Adyar Talk.
The aim of Project Deepam is to establish a well-equipped computer lab for children from classes 6 – 10 in Besant Theosophical Higher Secondary School. Besant Theosophical Higher Secondary School is a government aided school run by Kalakshetra Foundation. The school does not charge any fees from the students. While the corporation schools have been supplied with laptops and computers, the aided schools do not have access to technology aided learning. Many children from the BTHSS are from underprivileged background and do not have access to computers either at home or in school. With that in mind Asha Chennai volunteers extended their services by setting up a computer lab for children in the school. Read more here.
