PM laud’s Kiran Naik’s efforts, tweets about him
A government college lecturer in Andhra Pradesh has been encouraging tribal students to pursue higher education.
Kiran Naik’s mission is to motivate tribal youths to focus on their studies and achieve success in their career path as many tribal students do not come forward to join technical courses, leaving higher education seats vacant.
Naik, who hails from Sanjeeva Nagar Thanda in Atmakur Mandal, is a lecturer at Government Model Residential Polytechnic for Tribals, Srisailam, and a recipient of the National Award of Excellence, Leadership and Management from Angel Global University, Kakinada.
He believes that polytechnic education will make students of Chenchu and Sugali communities more employable and has visited ST Thandas and Chenchu Gudems to convince parents of students to let their children join diploma courses. Thirty-six youths joined diploma courses in 2016-17 because of his efforts and the number has gone up over the years, with at least 150 students pursuing different courses at his institute. Many of his students are now working in reputable organisations around the country.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi lauded Naik’s efforts as part of #PositiveMornings feature of Mann Ki Baat.
“In reality, only something which we give from the heart is truly important. Here, what we give, or how much we give does not matter. In these tough times, even a little effort from us, can become a huge support for those around us,” the PM tweeted.
