The school serves children from families of laborers working in the local agricultural fields. The annual income of majority of the parents is an average Rs. 7000 per year. There are no other schools in the area that these families can afford.
The Domino Effect
Thanks to a generous grant of $20,000 from SanDisk Corporation, a major portion of the reconstruction cost was taken care of. OSAAT funded the remaining amount. SanDisk Corporation is very impressed with OSAAT’s work and has pledged continued support for OSAAT. Rotary Club, Mysore, partnered with us on this project and continues to be a valuable partner for other OSAAT projects in the pipeline.
