Beating odds, Hera Public School is set to provide digital education for students at Azamgarh

Azamgarh (Uttar Pradesh) [India], October 29 (ANI/NewsVoir): With the increase in the spread of the COVID-19 virus, education across the world has gone online. As a result, a lot of students need internet that is free and fast. This is why Hera Public School, Phadgudia is in the process of converting their village Phadgudia into a Wi-Fi Hub and evolving into a full-fledged digital school. Hera Public School is situated in the village of Phadgudia in the district of Azamgarh in a scenic rural setting of eastern Uttar Pradesh.

Er Tarique Azam, a notable alumnus of IIT Madras (1974) and AIT Bangkok (1975) is the Founder of Hera Public School and has been committed to revive the concept of Excellent Community through holistic and quality education. Er Tarique Azam has a professional experience which spans over about 40 years involving more than 200 projects in Malaysia, Indonesia, the Middle East, and North Africa varying from tallest twin towers, international class expressways, largest span cable-stayed bridge to 2100-Megawatt power station and mass housing. After retiring from the post of Chief Executive of a Public Listed Engineering and Construction Company, he committed himself to work for the educational, social, and economic upliftment of the community, starting from the place of his birth, specially the weaker and underprivileged sections of the society through proper education and skill development.

“This was the beginning of realization of an old dream which I had nurtured from my IIT days or perhaps even earlier. It was in the year 2000 when I visited my village and realized the school which gave me quality education and made me learn how to create a balance between the spiritual and material needs, was in a pitiful state. The condition of the school had deteriorated to such an extent that the villagers had stopped sending their kids to that school. It was the time when I sensed that work must start at the grass root level and the need to establish a school in the village of my birth in order to address the educational backwardness of the rural society. I aspired to give back to the society from where I had gained so much. With this vision, I established Azam Welfare and Educational Society in 2003 and laid down the foundation of Hera Public School in 2006,” he said on the digital transformation of the school and enabling digital education for the students of Azamgarh.
