At the edge of the University of Hyderabad campus lies an unassuming one room tin shack – a quick look inside and you are greeted with a bevy of activity – lots of bright and happy faces – over 50 of them, of children as little as a few months old to almost 13 years old. These are children from the migrant worker community who live in temporary housing at the university premises for construction work at the site. The little shack is “Aksharavani”, a migrant school, founded in April 2011 with a staff of 2 teachers and 1 babysitter to cater to the needs of these children. Vivékin Group, a thought-leading US and Hyderabad-based management consultancy, adopted Aksharvani in a simple ceremony that coincided with the first-ever flag-hoisting event done at Aksharavani. Vivékin Group believes that the ability to perceive the needs of a community and the capacity to actually envision and establish a school that addresses its needs is a very commendable feat and is proud to be associated with the cause. As Dr. Baba Prasad, CEO of Vivékin Group, says, “If we believe as we indeed do, that there is a unique spark of intelligence in every individual, then what could be better than supporting Aksharavani, a school where children of migrant construction workers are trying to discover their own spark?” The school is equally delighted at being endorsed by Vivékin; as Co-Founder of Aksharavani, Bhavani Aadimoolam, says, “We at Aksharavani are very excited about the support from Vivékin Group because the conceptual fit between their vision and our aspirations for the school is perfect. We look forward to nurturing a relationship between Vivékin and Aksharavani in the years ahead so that the ultimate beneficiary is the collective of all of us.”
