Amazon CSR renovates ZPHS under its program
Amazon Web Services (AWS) – Amazon CSR has renovated Zilla Parishad High School (ZPHS) in Hythabad, Rangareddy district’s Shabad Mandal. It also developed an oxygen plant at the Maheshwaram Community Health Center (CHC) in the Rangareddy district, which can support up to 100 beds.
The ZPHS educates students from Hythabad and 15 other villages in the surrounding area. It has 323 students (174 girls and 149 males) in grades six through ten, as well as 15 teachers. The medium of instruction is Telugu and English.
The pupils had to deal with broken toilets, a lack of drinking water, water seepage in classrooms, and a worn-out school building, according to an AWS statement. Because the school lacked benches and tables, students were forced to sit on the floor. Classrooms lacked lighting and fans, as well as having damaged floors. Cooking was often done in filthy settings.
“We are delighted to be able to play a part around improving access to education,” Saji PK, Director of Data Center Operations (DDCO), AWS Asia-Pacific, Japan, and China, said. At the restored Zilla Parishad High School, more than 320 children from Hythabad and its surrounding 15 villages may now learn and grow in a cleaner, safer, and more vibrant environment, with access to proper classrooms, leisure, and sanitary facilities. We hope that the school will continue to attract more students and provide great education in its community.”
AWS has assisted in the construction of a Pressure Swing Adsorption (PSA) technique-based oxygen generator at the Maheshwaram CHC as part of its commitment to strengthening healthcare facilities in the community.
Around 2,00,000 people from Kandakur, Yacharam, Mahehwaram, and Kalwakurti Mandals receive healthcare from the CHC, which includes gynaecology, nephrology, paediatrics, and dental services.
According to the AWS report, the oxygen plant at the Maheshwaram CHC can produce 500 litres of oxygen per minute and support 90 to 100 beds daily.
‘AWS InCommunities,’ a community engagement programme that focuses on making a good effect in the places where Amazon Web Services (AWS) operates, completed the activities. These new initiatives were developed in partnership with Concern India Foundation, a major non-profit public charitable trust in India.
