“YOU must be the change you WISH to see in the WORLD.”
PCT started Community Development Program in 2003 with the belief that India is to be found not in its few cities but in its hundreds of thousands of villages. We wanted to start with some thing small first and then change the gears slowly with the help of people like YOU.
We are now in the process of working with other NGOs who have already been doing great work for our villages. The fortunate thing is we do not have to reinvent the wheel all over again. Just learn some proven ideas and concepts from the successfully implemented projects and try to apply them to the villages that are near to us.

Children Festivals in Rural Schools, East Godavari Dist. AP (2011)
This year, PCT has partnered with KRIYA, an NGO working primarily in rural schools to improve standards and also to create a positive learning environment.
Aim of Children Festivals
· To bridge the gap between illiterate parents and teachers
· To re-establish a link between theory and practice in teaching
· To energize the total school environment
· To give opportunity to children to show their innate abilities
· To create atmosphere of joyful learning
The impact of this activity has been tremendous on both the children and teachers. It creates a positive learning environment in the school.

Rural Libraries, East Godavari Dist. AP (2011)
PCT is in the process of collaborating with another NGO called BREAD (Basic Research and Education Development Society) to set up free libraries in rural government schools.
This project has been taken up with a view to catch the children at a very young age and to inculcate the book reading habit in them. Once it is set up, the library will be owned and run by the students and staff.
