District Collector Sameeran started the awareness tour of the art group in Coimbatore district on the ‘Illam Thedi Kalvi Project’. A home-based education program has been introduced in Tamil Nadu to reduce the learning gap between students who do not go to school for long periods of time. The Tamil Nadu government plans to recruit 2 lakh volunteers for this.
Volunteers are involved in this program and are organized to educate children. That means the volunteers who take part in it will spend at least 6 hours a day. Only volunteers who know Tamil, English, and Mathematics will participate.
Equipment for them will be provided by the government. The Government of Tamil Nadu has set a target of recruiting 2 lakh volunteers for this project. They will be paid a monthly salary of Rs.1000.
So far a total of 1 lakh people have registered to join the scheme, including 450 doctoral graduates. Of these, more than 50,000 are postgraduates and graduates. However, there is a lack of awareness among students and parents about the home-based education program.
So in order to make them aware of this project, performances are being held by art groups. The scheme is initiated by the ministers or governors in the respective districts. District Collector Sameeran started this awareness program in the Coimbatore district.
Then the artisan vehicles departed. The awareness program is to be held for 30 days in each district. In this awareness journey, 6 art groups are to carry out awareness in different places. Awareness is to be held with more focus on rural areas.
