Starting with our first centre today on 3rd June, 2014, VHL Odisha team will be setting up 5 Village knowledge centers in remote places of the state. Our vision is to provide free access to information on Education, Careers and Employment and we aim to carry it further through these knowledge hubs. We would also eventually expand to other domains based on local need. The center has been given for free from the local people. We thank them for their faith in our team and would strive to bring about a change through active involvement and constructive participation.
A proud moment for entire Nirmaan Team and Vidya Helpline supporters. VHL completes three years of service on 22nd May 2013. VHL project started with two full time employees on 22nd May 2010 with a single telephone line in Ranga Reddy dist and has now grown into a 16 full time member organisation involving more than 1000 volunteers and benefiting 60,000+ students and dropouts.
Nirmaan Vidya HelpLine project celebrated its 4th anniversary on 22nd May 2014. Today we are also celebrating the success of counseling more than 1,00,000 students.
In a span of 4 years we have evolved to 4 centers, 20+ full time soldiers, involving more than 1000 volunteers and inspiring ten's of thousands students. These remarkable results have been possible because of the efforts of our wonderful team, our proud Nirmaanites, volunteers, donors, supporters and our well wishers.
Today marks another step towards Nirmaan's vision of the rise of a great Nation. Nirmaan Vidya HelpLine's 4th center is inaugurated today in Nizamabad Sandbox. This center would support about 15000 students annually. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all the people involved for their wonderful support and contribution. This would not have been possible without the dedicated efforts of hundreds of volunteers, supporters, donors and our ever committed VHL Team.
Collaborative service always yields compounding results. In collaboration with the CSR team at IBM, Vidya Help Line has successfull conducted 12 workshops in a span of 4 weeks in East Godavari Dist. of Andhra Pradesh. With constant understanding and desire to reach out to as many students as possible, VHL and IBM have pushed the limits and worked at a faster pace than that we did in the past.
"He alone teaches who has something to give, for teaching is not talking, teaching is not imparting doctrines, it is communicating."

Information is only meaningful when it reaches the person who needs it the most. Charged with the initial success on tele counselling, Vidya Help Line initiated by Nirmaan continued with its vision to see every student access accurate information and unparallel guidance to support one's right to education.
