OCOL's Team members Annu and Pramod visited St. Marys School, located in A.S.Rao Nagar on 9th July, 2013 as part of the ongoing Awareness and Fundraising Campaign on Solar and Renewable Energy. About 60 Students from classess 3 to 8 assembled for the session with the support and assistance from their teachers.
The students listened with rapt attenntion as OCOLs team member, Pramod briefed them about the need for adopting Solar technologies and about the OCOL programme. They were quite excited too see an antique Kerosene lamp which was displayed to explain about the issue, but were moved when they learnt about the hazards and ill effects the dear old oil lamp could cause, expecially on children from rural areas who had no other alternatives.
The children were keen to enrich their knowledge on the concept of Solar Energy and showed eagerness in getting involved in our mission to help children from rural ares by helping replace the dangerous kerosene lamps with Solar LED Study Lights from OCOL.
The concept was cheerfully welcomed and appreciated by one and all including the school Coordinator Ms. Swapna, who was contacted by Annu, who coordinated the visit.
A big thankyou to the management and students of St. Marys School for helping us make this a success.
