Students of this village were facing problem in attending online classes due to poor internet connection.
Due to the spread of the coronavirus pandemic, classes had to be moved online to ensure the safety of children.
However, this adversely affected education, especially in rural areas where students face problems due to poor internet issues.
An artist by profession, Satyeshwar Singh, along with the students, helped to overcome the problem by building a bamboo treehouse where internet connection was good.
Singh said, “There are very few places where we get a good internet connection and this (where the bamboo tree was built) is one of them. When the kids told me about their problem, I was asked to build a bamboo treehouse. The idea came.” ,
He said that the tree house can be used even in bad weather.
Vicky Singh, a class 12 student, in Udhampur said, “Online classes started during the lockdown and we faced many difficulties in connecting to the internet. So, when we told Satyeshwar about our problem. Satyeshwar told us we got a tree. House should be built. There are 10. -12 students who come here. We used to sit together and discuss the subject.”
Arun Singh, a student of class 11, said, “There was noise in my house and I could not concentrate on my classes. But, the pleasant atmosphere here helps me in studies.”
