KL Deemed-to-be University, one of the leading universities in the country for graduation and higher education, has undertaken a massive pilot project in association with AP Legal Services Authority, in Guntur. This extensive survey which covered over 800 citizens of 3 villages adopted by the University was done by 100 students belonging to BBA LLB and LLB programs at the KL College of Law in Vaddeswaram, Andhra Pradesh.
Dr. G. Pardha Saradhi Varma, Vice Chancellor, KL Deemed to be University said, “I am happy to see that our students have embodied the core values of the University to erect a flourishing community in the villages. Through this project, we are happy to witness our law students develop into social entrepreneurs as they address problems at base level. I’m certain that a change was instilled through the legal literary camps held by our pupils to educate the villagers on their legal rights. Once they learn first-hand that their education has a purpose, their ‘qualification’ becomes their ‘calling’.”
Mrs. Ratna, a resident in Kunchanapalli, has stated that “I have been separated from my husband for years and I am yet to receive the divorce decree. I was repeatedly told that divorce is a laborious process, and I must therefore wait. Only after speaking to the students did I understand my true rights and realize how I was held back all these years. For finally enabling a platform for our voices to be heard, I am truly thankful to these youngsters.”
