As part of the events to celebrate CIRCUTOR's 40th anniversary, the company partnered with the Vicente Ferrer Foundation (NGO) to launch a fundraising campaign to build an educational centre in India, located in the Dharmavaram area of the Bathalapalli region, in the village of Chennekothapalli.
Today, we can announce that construction of the educational centre is finished and we are happy to report that the contributions of CIRCUTOR's workers and that of the company itself have helped make this project a reality.
From now on 51 primary students – 27 girls and 24 boys – will have a space for tutoring before and after school hours and the community will have a meeting space, strengthening the sense of belonging and the organisation of CDCs (Community Development Committees).
This project ensures the right to education of the boys and girls of Chennekothapalli village through the construction of the supplementary school, guaranteeing that they can face the future on an equal footing.
We would like to thank everyone for their collaboration in achieving this objective that is so important in social terms.
The Vicente Ferrer Foundation is a development-focused NGO committed to the process of transforming and improving the living conditions of the most disadvantaged communities of Andhra Pradesh, which is not only one of the poorest areas in India but also one of the poorest and most excluded communities in the world. The field of education receives special emphasis, as access to it is an essential foundation for community development.
