He further using paint to draw something, write some English words using MS-Word, playing music using computer etc. I was always thinking that when the day will come & I will independently handle this machine?
Thanks to Rallis now in this summer, it was fun for me when I visited my uncle house. Now I am also confident as my younger brother and I use the computer for drawing objects, paint some drawings, play some computer games etc. I also realised now the importance of computer education in our life and career.

2. Principal Mr Ghodeswar sir's view on Rallis interventions at Blue Lotus convent:
I want to Thank Rallis Akola unit and whole heartedly appreciate their efforts in working for development of under privilege children.
I had dream of starting a School for Labour class children and encourage them to undergo technical training for their future career growth. For last 14 years I have been walking alone for fulfilling my dreams.
I belonged to lower income group, hence financially was weak. So started meeting various groups and people to discussion about my dream project, but besides mental support and appreciation for my efforts, I gain nothing. Once I went to meet Rallis Akola unit and it was a fruitful visit. I felt now my dreams can accelerate its growth as Rallis showed positive interest in supporting and helping our school not only financially but with knowledge sharing also.
Rallis initiated various activities in our school for the development of our students. Our students are also eagerly waiting for Rallis programs. Initiatives like Science interventions for students, environment awareness, health check-up and awareness, programs for language development etc are implemented by Rallis in our school.
We had water shortage, so Rallis came forward and constructed Jal Kund for our school, so our water requirement can be meet. We thank Rallis team for their support and encouragement which has motivated and positively impacted our students.
