Arya Vysya Officials and Professionals Association,
AVOPA in Chirala started in 1982 with objectives to help
the poor and needy in Arya Vysya Community. AVOPA has
been actively engaged in service activities all these
years. A couple of major AVOPA efforts are worth mentioning
for a fair introduction.
In 1982, AVOPA launched AVOPA Free Sewing Training
Center. Till date, over 600 students were trained free by
professional trainers engaged at the cost of the organization.
In 2004, AVOPA started a corpus fund out of kind donations
from patrons using which sewing machines are being
distributed to qualified poor Vysya women on interest-free
loans. When they repay, typically in 20 affordable
installments, the money will be reused to grant more
machines to another set of beneficiaries.
25 machines have been distributed to the needy Vysya
women till date and many of them triggered rejuvenated
lives from the revenues through this source.
In 1990, AVOPA set up AVOPA Free Type Writing Institute.
More than 1500 students were trained free by professional trainers
in this government recognized institute. About 50 students reported
obtaining jobs based on this training. The institute offers lower
and higher type writing training in English as well as Telugu.
Being inspired by the successes of these initiatives and to go along
with current computer world, the veteran body of AVOPA initiated efforts
to establish a free computer training institute. The idea received
a very encouraging response from the charitable Vysya community.
A prime donor deposited the seed money making the idea viable
and an about-to-be-launched Valiveti Mahatma Gandhi Leelavathi
AVOPA Free Computer Training Center materialized. Few more
patrons donated Personal Computers (PCs) and a few others
offered cash contributions.
Free computer training center needs helping
hands and generous contributions from sponsors like you.
The center will need more PCs and supporting infrastructure like tables, chairs, printers,
teaching materials, and a decent location. Paid faculty will
be hired to teach contemporary technologies and courses.
Courses could be part-time or full-time, to be devised
to meet with the needs and expectations of the students
as well as the industry.
Being compatriots, we know you for your generosity and kindness
in supporting such initiatives. To achieve the necessary infrastructure
as well as adequate financial resources to meet with the operational
expenses of this free computer training institute, we request
your compassionate backing and donation.
We look forward to an affirmative response at your earliest.
