APTA Women Empowerment Program

American Progressive Telugu Association Women Empowerment Forum (AWEF) is taking up a new initiative AWEP (APTA Women Empowerment Program) which focuses on providing sanitary napkins, Incinerators ( Machine to burn used pads) & organize awareness sessions of using pads in Government High Schools in the states of Andhra Pradesh and Telangana which will start on March 8th.

To kick off this AWEP project , APTA has chosen Jubilee High School, Rayavaram , Palnadu as a pilot project and inaugurating free pad/napkin supplies, incinerator including awareness sessions among school girls about the usage. In addition, APTA is also providing free sports gear/equipment to the school, to attract and retain the students in the campus for enhanced learning and fun!, pilot project will be inaugurated on Feb 26th

​Thousands of girls and women face sanitary challenges every month in remote villages due to lack of access to female hygienic pads. Imagine a female student in a high school, in an area of poverty and malnutrition, who want to excel in school because it is your only ticket to the future but have to face this problem and can’t attend school.  Just imagine. Alas!  Reality is painful in that part of the world. Imagine the frustration, the sadness, and the shame they feel every month. They are forced to improvise with unhygienic alternatives.  These alternatives put them at a higher risk for infectious diseases and missing more school days as a result. Thousands of girls and women go through this challenge every month in some places due to lack of access to female hygienic pads. Having access to sanitary pads is not luxury for these girls (or even women for that matter) it is a basic human right, the right for basic means to cleanliness, for health, for education and above all, the preservation of human dignity.

Etukuru Medical Camp – Jul 2016

Please find below details of medical camp which we conducted last Sunday. 

Last Sunday (7/24/2016) we had a successful eye and medical camp at Etukuru, Guntur. The camp started at 7 AM with blood testing and the patients arrived at the venue on time. As the patients arrived at the venue early morning without eating breakfast we provided fruits after blood sample collection. Shankara eye hospital doctors & supporting staff arrived at 8:30 AM and started to organize things. Medical camp started at 9 AM and by 11 AM total patient count reached 700. Earlier we expected 500 patients to attend camp, however, increase in the numbers caused shortage of iron, calcium and vitamin syrups. We arranged for more. By the end of the day 1200 patients attended the camp. Dr Uday Shankar garu led the medical camp with his team of doctors Dr. Chandu Ajay Kumar, Dr. Murali, Dr. S. Radha Madhavi, Dr. P. Sai Kiran, Dr. Kalyan, Dr. Sai Priya, Dr. Naveena. Many other medical professionals volunteered.

Ground work for this medical camp started from 7/2/2016 when we created whatsapp group to discuss things and assign ownership for specific tasks. We got extensive support from Shri Uggirala Seetharamaiah garu and he nominated Shri Markandeyulu garu to organize everything for our organization. Shri Markandeyulu garu extended full support and spearheaded the smooth conduction of the camp. Siva Gona garu helped us with banner preparation, media relations and wonderful food. Srihari garu (brother of our aptudu Eswar Arige garu) arranged vehicles and co-ordinated with volunteers. Vehicles were placed at Lalpuram and Budampadu villages from 7 AM. They made several trips. Srini Degala garu arranged fruits in short notice with the help of his brother in law Shri Inturi Satyanarayana garu. He volunteered for the event. Subhash Tanniru garu, Sudheer Nissankararao garu, Sri Nissankararao garu participated actively and updated things regularly. JJV garu & Anil Veeriseety extended his support in arranging mementos, audio script for advertisements and local coordination. Eswar Arige garu was supportive all the time, gave very good suggestions regularly. He is the main person who introduced Dr. Uday Shankar garu. Dr Surya Raguthu garu sponsored all medications for the camp. Gopal Gudapati garu was with the team always.

Shri Katuri Srinivas garu, Lalpuram president was very supportive and co-ordinated with Lalpuram and Budampadu people. Vamshi Annangi garu was on the ground all day and took care of all the proceedings. 

Several hundreds of volunteers participated. If I miss any names please let me know. APTA Medical Assistance Program (AMAP) team worked so hard to make this event successful and memorable.

APTA Scholarship ASEP Guntur 2015

APTA introduces a new program called ASEP [APTA Student Education Program], which enables us to help poor and needy students back home. APTA would strive to connect a benevolent and generous donor to a bright and needy student. On a regular basis, ASEP committee collects a list of economically backward students, who are exceptionally doing well in their studies/academics, but coming from the families that are too economically weak to support their kids’ educational expenses. APTA renders partial/full support to the selected students on an annual basis. If any of you come across such exceptional students with an abject poverty background, kindly forward their details to apta-exec@googlegroups.com.

ఒక ఆప్తుని జీవితం = సగం బాహుబలి సినిమా టికెట్
మీలో చాలామంది బాహుబలి సినిమా చూసేవుంటారు . కొంతమంది అయినా ప్రీమియం షో చూసి వుంటారు. నాకు గుర్తు వున్నంతవరకు టికెట్ $35. కార్ పెట్రోల్, మైంటెనెన్సు , టోల్స్ , స్నాక్స్ అన్నికలుపుకుంటే కనీసం $45 అయ్యి ఉంటుంది. అక్కడికి వెళ్లి మరీ చూసింది ఏమిటి అంటే సగం బాహుబలి సినిమా. $45 అంటే రైట్ నౌ Rs 3004. అంటే ఆ మొత్తంతో మీరు ఒక ఇంటర్మీడియట్ లేదా డిగ్రీ చదివే ఆప్తుని ASEP కి రెఫర్ చెయ్యవచ్చు. ఆ సహాయం ఆ ఆప్తుని జీవితాన్ని, లేదా కనీసం జీవితం మీద ఆశని సజీవంగా ఉంచుతుంది.
