Telangana Seeks Alumni Support for Schools
To strengthen education in government schools in Mahabubnagar district in Telangana, the district administration has sought the support of alumni from across the world. An app was developed by the education department and National Informatics Centre to coordinate the fundraising activities. District Collector S Venkat Rao said that funds raised will be used to provide basic infrastructure in the schools, including the maintenance of sanitation. He said that although the schools were closed now due to the spread of Covid-19, students of the schools would need masks and sanitisers once they reopened. Hence, the funds obtained from donations would be used to procure masks and sanitisers, he said.
