The conditions of the unorganized labor working in the lime Kilns were deplorable and the children were hardest hit, and their futures became a casualty. That provided the backdrop to start a school at Indhiramma Colony, Piduguralla, Andhra Pradesh.
With aid coming from Wortundtat, AMG India established the Pre-school, day care and primary school in the year 2015 which benefitted the children of the lime kiln workers by initiating them into education. The original intent was that after the completion of the school the children would avail secondary education in Chilakaluripet.
Since 2015 several hundred girls and boys have attended pre-school, day nursery and primary school.
However, only a few children have made the transition after the primary school to the secondary boarding school at Chilakaluripet, primary reason cited being the reluctance of parents to send children far from home to reside in the boarding school at Chilakaluripet.
Referring to the situation, AMG, India has recently made a proposal addressing Wortundtat signifying the need for starting a secondary school constituting Grades 6th to 12th in Piduguralla school campus.
Wortundtat has tasked School Serv to assess the feasibility of starting a secondary school (Grades 6 thru 12) and suggest a strategy for the way forward.
