I have been associated with DEVISE since 2019 and the children we help inspire me each day to learn more and have taught me the value of education. It appals me that so much potential and talent goes unnoticed only because of social hierarchies created by a language. In my new term, I look forward to ensuring that their education is not hindered by the pandemic and that we keep working hard to increase our outreach.
I’m Anirudh, a 4th year student at NALSAR, Hyderabad. I have been involved with DEVISE since 2019. It has been a massive learning experience and its sad to see such bright minds going unnoticed due to the language barrier. I would request you all to contribute in whatever manner you can to try to make education more accessible.
I am a fourth year student at NALSAR University of Law who is interested in public policy. My previous volunteering experience with DEVISE has given me a direct experience in understanding the sheer educational privilege that I enjoy because of language, amongst a bunch of other factors. As the Head of Social and Emotional Learning Team, I am committed towards creating a holistic learning experience for children by not only helping them break through linguistic but also any psychological and social barriers that they may face. I look forward to interacting with the children here who never fail to put a smile on my face!
I am a fourth year student at NALSAR University of Law, Hyderabad. My journey with DEVISE began in 2018 purely out of my fondness to interact with kids. It has been an incredible journey ever since. The energy that the kids bring into classes serves as a constant reminder of how much potential could have possibly gone unnoticed. My goal, through DEVISE, is to go beyond the formalistic style of teaching and provide a fun yet productive environment for the kids to learn and grow.
I am a fourth year student at NALSAR, Hyderabad. I am interested in human rights law, constitutional law, tech law, and the interface of the three. I have been associated with DEVISE since 2019. I love spending time with kids and hope to work with this initiative to make the world more accessible for some kids, bit by bit.
Yashwanth is currently a student of law at NALSAR University of Law, Hyderabad and has been associated with DEVISE activities since 2019. He is also a member of the University’s Committee against Sexual Harassment (CASH) and the Social Responsibility and Student Welfare Committee (SRSWC). He is also an avid quizzer and is interested in the fields of Affirmative Action Policies and Cross-Cultural Studies. He believes that education can help in making society more equitable and believes in a right to free education.
I’m Poojitha Sirimalla, a 3rd year student at NALSAR, Hyderabad. I dream of an inclusive society and my interest lies in working towards the upliftment of underprivileged and marginalised sections of the society. Education is significant for the country’s development and I hope that someday, language does not act as a barrier for higher or quality education. As one of the heads of training team, I aim at maximising the efficiency of DEVISE and also in promoting its outreach in order to accommodate a greater number of students. I hope all the training and exposure that the children gain from DEVISE sessions becomes of help in the long run.
I started working with DEVISE after a random afternoon spent painting the stars and planets for the classroom and can say for sure that in all my time with DEVISE, they’ve definitely been able to improve my broken Telugu, even if I haven’t managed a huge headway with their English. It’s very fulfilling to be a part of this project, knowing that we can make a tangible difference to the kids’ lives. My favourite part about teaching at CuBE is the enthusiasm at the end of classes when the kids surround our autos – you never know when the innocent face in front of you might ask for a handshake that (surprise) was actually meant to break your hand. I look forward to my time as Training Team leader and can’t wait to go back in person.
I had joined DEVISE in my junior year and since then, it has taught me humility and made me aware of all the educational and developmental opportunities I have been showered with. I now seek to make whatever contribution I can to expose everyone to such opportunities. Human rights and social sciences have always excited me and with a drive to give back to society, I am prepared to advance exclusive education to the maximum through DEVISE or as SpongeBob would have said, “I’m ready! I’m ready! I’m ready!”
Being associated with Devise as a volunteer earlier has revealed to me some brilliant minds of our county who remain unexposed because of the sheer lack of access to education. What Devise is doing is not simply providing education but it’s the first step towards creating a far more accessible social system where each and every person is able to realise their potential and nurture their talent.I am Maladi Pranay, currently in my third year. I have been associated with DEVISE since the beginning of my second year as a volunteer for the Reading Room Team. In my time as a volunteer, I have come to appreciate the need for initiatives such as DEVISE, which aim to reduce language-barriers – a significant obstacle for many who cannot afford education in the elite private schools. I hope to make some difference in this regard through the Reading Room Team.

I am very excited to join the group as a Social Media head and promise to do my best with the position.
I am a final year student at NALSAR with an inclination towards matters relating to public interest. I have been associated with a local community group for specially-abled orphans and have undertaken efforts to help the underprivileged during the pandemic. I aspire to work for the rights of women & children and also contribute my bit towards climate change.
