Posted On: 2018-09-22 09:19:25

In yet another initiative to improve the quality of education in the country, ACC Limited, one of India's leading producers of cement and ready mix concrete today facilitated a massive book distribution drive providing students of Chandrapur District access to 31,000 new books weighing about 28 tonnes, worth Rs. 80 lakhs. As part of its flagship programme ACC Vidya Utkarsh, ACC TRUST has provided quality reading material ranging from storybooks and textbooks on science and social studies to literary masterpieces to over 123 schools, and has set up 29 new libraries at Cluster Resource Centres within Chandrapur District.

Additionally, ACC TRUST has organised a two-day workshop for headmasters and librarians from government and private schools to brainstorm on ways to improve the quality of existing libraries and how they could improve reading habits among students. At the end of the two-day workshop, all the learnings and suggestions will be compiled and handed over to the district administrator for their consideration and action. Through these efforts, ACC is empowering over 65,000 students from 123 Schools and 32 colleges in the district.

The workshop was graced by Shri Jitendra Papalkar (IAS) CEO ZP - Chandrapur, Mr. C. Kurian, Head Business Services - ACC Limited and Mr K.V Reddy, Director Plant - ACC Chanda Cement Works. Mr Pratyush Panda, Head CSR - ACC Limited, Shri Sanjay Dorlikar, Education Officer - ZP Chandrapur, Shri Lokhande, Education Officer Primary - ZP Chandrapur, Fr Robert, Principal - Viyani Vidya Mandir, Mr Brijbhushan Pazare, Chairman - Social Welfare, ZP Chandrapur, Mr Satyajeet Amale - Police Station Incharge Ghugus were present.

Commenting on the initiative, Neeraj Akhoury, Managing Director & CEO, ACC Limited said, "It is said that reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body. Many deserving children and youth in our country do not have access to quality reading material. Through ACC Vidya Utkarsh, we are continuously investing in improving education and reading habits amongst students. We are proud to lead this effort to complement the efforts of the Chandrapur administrators and educators."

ACC Vidya Utkarsh facilitates quality education to children in host communities through a hub and spoke model. 15 ACC established schools have developed into Centres of Excellence over the past decades which play the role of a hub to enhance the quality of education in government schools.
