Sl. No Best Practice – 1
1 Title of the Practice     Recycling of Waste Paper

 

2 Goal The objective of the Practice  is to manage the Solid Waste and used paper in and around the College

To Practice the mechanism for an organised collection and exchanged waste paper can be effectively utilised by the College and

To have an MOU with Vamsadara Paper Mills.

3 The Context

 

The outputs of the Practice will immensely benefit the Indian Paper Industry as it is facing an acute shortage of fibre resources. The new

National Forest policy (NFP) in 1989 of GOI and the guidelines provided by NFP have clearly indicated that no forest wood supply would be forthcoming for paper industry in near future and therefore raw material requirement cannot be sustained from forest produce and paper industry shall have to generate their own woody raw material source or have to increase the use of agricultural residues or waste paper.

It is mere fact, that the accumulated waste Paper is being a big problem with destruction of rats and other insects and it leads to storage conservational problem in the College.

1 Title of the Practice  Educating one illiterate adult by one student
2 Goal As part of the Corporate Social Responsibility, the College aims to educate the villagers and spread literacy in the villages surrounding the Srikakulam town. The citizens should be aware of the social, political developments and various welfare schemes of the Government. Education gives the citizens confidence, self-respect and self- reliance in the society. Knowledge and literacy changes their outlook and perspective and brings a qualitative change in their lives.
3 The Context

 

The people in villages in this part of the district are educationally backward, and superstitious and still practising many social evils like marriages at a young age, marriages in close blood relations, superstitions, and girls have a chronic anaemia, biased views about the girl child, and are devoid of modern approach to life and society. The people are not using toilets at home, and it is still considered as not free from open defecation. Many of them do not have bank accounts, are far away from digital literacy. This situation demands greater attention and improvement.
4 The Practice

 

In this scenario, the practice  Each One Teach One was initiated on the day of ‘World Litaracy Day’ on dt: 08.09.2014 with selected students from some sections form a team and visit the selected village frequently and form a group of villagers ( elders, who do not have formal education) to whom Telugu Varnamala   (Telugu Alphabets) will be taught. They select a place preferably village library, village Panchayat office, or the premises of a temple. In this place the students meet their target audience and teach them regularly. The students also give them small tasks to the people to help them improve their learning. They will be encouraged to listen to radio and television news. They will be given books for learning and writing. Small stories would be read out for them to inspire and encourage.  Students use tablets and smart phones while they teach the villagers and actively use smart phone applications (Apps) for better results.
5 Evidence of

Success

 

A visit by the Principal and IQAC Co-ordinator to the village to inspect the initiative yielded surprising results. The villagers responded enthusiastically at the programme and evinced keen interest in the continuation of the programme. Many of the participants learnt the basics and fundamentals of Telugu which would take them to a long way in learning many things. The teachings of the students, and visits by the college faculty have been recorded separately.
6 Problems Encountered and Resources Required

 

The villagers are mainly work on daily wages and sometimes skip the classes due to fatigue and work constraints. Sustainability on the part of the villagers is another problem encountered by the students while teaching them. The people in the village resisted the efforts of the students when they tried to educate them about various social evils, in the name of customs and traditions.

The programme initiated by the college gave mixed results and with this experience the college plans to design a better programme in the future.
