An MoU was signed between Districts 3070, 3080 and the State Education department of Himachal Pradesh to revamp school education and upgrade related facilities under the ambitious project Samagra in the hill State.
D 3070 Governor Barjesh Singhal and PDG Dhian Chand representing DG Praveen Goyal, D 3080, signed the agreement in the presence of State Education Minister Suresh Bhardwaj and Department Secretary Dr Arun Sharma. Both the districts will partner with the Himachal government to “uplift and develop school education and other related facilities.”
“The agreement is the outcome of consistent efforts made by Dhian Chand who convinced the government that Rotarians are men of action and they mean business. And our success in PolioPlus campaign is a testimony on that,” said PDG K K Dhir, D 3070, one of the project signatories.
Rotary clubs in both the districts will conduct field survey of schools and recommend upgrades in teaching standards. “The partnership will also revamp school infrastructure and try to match it with those of private schools. The State government shall provide requisite funding to fulfill our objectives,” said DG Singhal.
DGN Davinder Singh, D 3070, Past AG S N Kapoor and AG Pankaj Daddwal, D 3080, were the other signatories to the Samagra Project.
