The Child and Police (CAP) project, located at Kondayapalem Gate here, received appreciation for successfully rehabilitating destitute children and providing residential education to them on its premises.

Scores of children, who used to wander and collect coins thrown in funeral processions at Bodiganithota cremation grounds, were given counselling and admitted to the CAP. Their parents were also convinced to help transform their children.

The children were praised for showing interest in education. Rajiv Vidya Mission State project director V. Usha Rani made a visit to the CAP project here on Tuesday.

Accompanied by several police officials, Ms. Usha Rani visited different facilities provided at the CAP premises and also enquired about the opportunities being given to the children at the place.

Stating that the CAP was a good opportunity, Ms. Usha Rani told the children to make good use of this project and make good progress in life. She gave away prizes won by the CAP students in various competitions.

The CAP project was initiated by IPS officer B.V. Ramana Kumar when he served in Nellore district as Superintendent of Police. The project was aimed at transformational rehabilitation of the destitute children and providing educational support to them.

After modest beginnings, the CAP got support from the administration and moved on to establish adequate infrastructure for residential accommodation of these children. This formed part of the overall plan as the children would not have had a chance to get good education if they had to stay at their houses.
