At Redlawada, students practice send letters so they can improve their communication skills, both in writing and learning how to respectfully address elders.

Seventh class student S. Anil took the lessons a step further. He wrote his letter to the village secretary, asking about the dengue and malaria that afflicts villagers, the resulting fevers and how to prevent the illnesses.
