In order to uplift the people in the area, the ICM church, with a USD3,500 grant from the AOC USA, started the Vision Computer Schhol. A teacher has been hired to teach useful applicatiuons, particularly Photoshop, as this enables the graduates to set up their own consultancy or be employed in photo shops.
On Feb 17th 2011, a group of twenty graduates received their certificates from Bishop John Nakka, Bishop Dr. Joshua Raj and members of the short term mission team to Eluru.
The school will welcome donations of new computers and resources to pay the teachers. All students are usually from families below the poverty line, as indicated by the government issued ID cards.

Graduate (Lady/42 years) - I have now found a part time job as Photoshop editor with a local photo studio. I also have a job as governemtn teacher so this extar income helps my family.
Graduate (Man/34 years) - I am an evangelist with the ICM-AOC church. The church cannot pay me but I minister in one of the small villages. This school has helped me set up my own photo studio work. It helps me to supplement my income and help my family so I can do evangelism. Thank you to the AOC in the USA for funding and starting this ministry.
