Vijayawada: As a part of the Government of Andhra Pradesh’s special initiative, AP Janmabhoomi, 100 recent graduates and college students will get an opportunity to intern with the Government through Internshala. The selected interns will work with Mandal-level officers, Gram Panchayats, and higher officials of an assigned area to identify potential NRIs who can contribute to the digital classroom initiative. This is an opportunity for the youth to work for social development.
In collaboration with Department of School Education, Andhra Pradesh and under the leadership of Jayaram Komati, Andhra Pradesh’s Special Representative to North America, AP Janmabhoomi aims to digitise 5000 government schools in Andhra Pradesh by 2018. Last year, over 300 interns worked with 1000 government school teachers towards digital literacy.
India’s leading internship and training platform, Internshala is the Internship Partner for this initiative. As a part of this program, each intern will work with GoAP officials, connect with NRIs to promote the cause of AP Janmabhoomi among them, and collaborate with school authorities and facilitate the digitisation of schools through NRI funding. On completion of their internship, the interns will receive a certificate and top performing interns will also get a letter of recommendation
Mr Komati said, “AP Janmabhoomi has always been at the forefront in encouraging students to take an active part in the program and be socially responsible. We have given around 1000 students across the nation, a vast spectrum of opportunities through the Internship schemes. Over the past year, we had with us over 300 interns who have worked with 1000 teachers in digital literacy. This summer, we are providing the opportunity for 100 students in reaching out to the NRI community through the Project Outreach Program and thereby taking the vision of our Honorable CM Shri. Nara Chandrababu Naidu Garu forward. We thank Internshala for their constant support throughout the program.”
Founded in 2010, Internshala offers 4 lac+ internships every year. Over 2.5 million students and 80,000 organisations use the platform. On Internshala, students can also learn 15+ industry relevant skills through online trainings.
“We received positive feedback from students for the AP Janmabhoomi’s digital literacy program last year and the project outreach program is an equally exciting opportunity for the students across Andhra Pradesh. AP Janambhoomi’s program is an opportunity for the youth to start their career as well as work for a social cause. Moreover, the students have an exciting chance to work and interact with the officials.”, said Sarvesh Agrawal, the founder and CEO, Internshala.
