As part of the campaign, the government created two hashtages – #OurTeachersOurHeroes and #TeachersFromIndia. Students would be asked to write their favorite teacher’s name on a white paper and take a selfie with the poster. These are tweeted with the hashtag #OurTeachersOurHeroes. The teachers and lecturers take selfies in the background of their schools and universities and upload them to social media using the hashtag #OurTeachersOurHeroes.
This school year starts on September 5th and the Vidya kits, consisting of notebooks, textbooks, uniforms and other necessary materials, will be distributed to students on the same day. 60 percent of the kits have already reached schools. Up to 40 Lakh Vidya kits would be distributed as part of the program.
Schools will reopen in the state after five months. Schools have closed because of the lockdown declared as part of efforts to contain the coronavirus.
