Each Volunteer is assigned a grade (5th, 6th, 7th or 8th) in a school located in one of the remote villages of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. The selected volunteers need to be fluent in Telugu. Powered by advanced technology and an elaborate syllabus, Teacher Volunteers virtually engage with the children on a real time basis and perform the tasks of teaching/demonstrating the pre-planned topics and concepts, appropriate to the student’s grade.
