An outreach program was held at Raj Bhavan, Kohima for students from Visually Impaired School, Notun Basti, Dimapur and Government Middle School, Officers’ Hill, Kohima. 

According to DIPR, speaking at the program, Governor of Nagaland, PB Acharya stated that government schools usually attract students from the poorer communities, but this should not stop them from acquiring a good education. Education is key in the progression of a society, he stated, adding that schools and colleges give you knowledge about how to progress in life. The Governor went on to add that the acquisition of an education should not be motivated by selfishness but it should make an individual enrich society. This, he said, should be the mind set of all the students. He also added that the system of education should change. Dwelling on the progress of society, Acharya stated that in today’s world, a simple graduation degree will not suffice if the said person remains unemployed. Therefore, he encouraged youth to think of the State and try to not only find employment or sources of earning, but also bring in different ways to empower and employ the people of Nagaland. 
SP Kohima, Sendongmeren, in his short speech, advised the students to be sincere in their studies and work hard since there are no shortcuts in life. He also told the students to not bunk classes and avoid using social media sites since they hamper concentration. He further asked them to abide by the laws and always respect their elders. 
Head teacher, GMS School, Mimi Yhoshu shared her gratitude with the Governor and his wife for adopting the GMS School and for helping take the school to greater heights. She also said that visits by the Governor’s wife to their school was always encouraging, not only for the students but also the teachers. Mimi further mentioned that through their initiative, the school got the opportunity to interact with various organizations from outside the State which has been helping them introduce a library program and computer workshop. This, she said, will enhance the children’s reading and comprehension skills and also their technological knowledge. 
Joint Secretary to Governor, George Abraham gave the welcome address and the Governor’s wife Kavita Acharya presented a special song.
