(prsubmissionsite) May 09, 2020
Dr Aperna Volluru, having a PhD in Psychology from University of Essex (UK), is a dedicated Clinical Child Psychologist. She’s the Founder and Chairperson of My School ITALY and RITZY Group. She is adorned with dozen’s of awards and the most recent one is the European Business Awards 2019’s National Winner for Italy. The result of her 3 decades long career in Europe, as a Psychologist, an Educationist and an Entrepreneur, is her unquenchable thirst for empowering and revitalising people through Early Childhood Education and Care (ECEC) facilities, encouraging entrepreneurship in economically disadvantaged communities and generating job opportunities for all, especially young women. A strong woman loves, forgives, walks away, lets go, tries again, perseveres… no matter what life throws at her, including a Pandemic like Covid -19. Her grit didn’t allow her to change her pre-scheduled On Job Training program for the 17 young Girls who are from the first batch (2018-2020) of Pre Primary Teachers Training Vocational course of Telangana Social Welfare Residential Schools. With 100% precautions, along with her team, she carried out the 45 days of unhampered Training as scheduled in Dec 2019. These girls who belong to really poor and marginalised class, are now ready to be placed in various International Preschools as teachers as soon as the Lock down is done with. She didn’t allow the Pandemic to affect the future of these girls who would have otherwise been married off to some drunkards, lose individuality, even the last of human dignity. Since 2017 she has been giving International standards of Preschool eduction in India by franchising her Preschools under the brand, “RITZY Schools”. 2018 onwards, she started her philanthropic work with the youth of marginalised class by training them to be Entrepreneurs, Motherpreneurs and Womenpreneurs. Her mission and vision to create equalisers that allow individuals from variant educational, socio-economic and familial backgrounds to prosper financially. Today as a philanthropist she is working not only with marginalised community children in Telangana, but with the tribal children of Lahaul and Spiti in Himachal Pradesh at the altitude of 13000 ft above sea level. Establishing 100+ schools in such a short span and setting up Preschools in rural India is just a humble beginning. Dr Aperna doesn’t call this a success because for her the success is when she will be able to reach the children in every small town and village of India, where still a huge population of 0-6 years don’t have access to preschooling.
