03 September 2016 Current Affairs: Vice President of India M. Hamid Ansari inaugurated the 4th phase of the Vidyadhanam project at Kochi, Ernakulam in Kerala on August 31, 2016.

The project provides financial incentive and scholarship to bright students from government and aided schools, in addition to encouraging cultivation of life skills, such as thrift and financial inclusion. 

While inaugurating the project Vice President Ansari said that, there is a need to ensuring not only increase in government investments in education, but also to maintaining the funding levels of other social welfare schemes to make sure that falling incomes of parents do not impact the educational prospects of in-school children. 

By giving the example of success in Kerala towards the expansion of education, Vice President Ansari said that education in Kerala has led to enhancement of individual freedom, creation of a better climate for gender equity and much faster reduction in income poverty than in many other states of India.
