DIA collaborates with a school in Hyderabad, India

DIA’s 2017 fundraiser will sponsor education for under privileged children in Hyderabad, India.

Saraswatha Academy high school is located outside Gowlipur, Hyderabad. The school provides English  medium education to children belonging to poor and below the poverty line.
The school currently has 412 students. The school is established for the benefit of underprivileged children as the parents cannot afford to send their children to far-off places where educational facilities are available.

The school is supported by the contribution of donors. Dr. Mitta, a resident of Albany, and a grandparent of one of the DIA members is one of the active donors in the school and enlighten DIA about the need of these children. Every child has a right to education and due to economic reasons, a child should not be deprived of going to school.

The school started with a mere shade, with no school supplies or any kind of furniture. Through the kind efforts of the donors, today the school has benches, blackboard, a couple of rooms to start.There is a lot of work required and our goal is to raise enough funds that no child is left behind. Help us send a child to school.
