We are proud to start this journey. We are grateful and optimistic that people will want to continue this domino effect, so we can do more.


Before OSAAT Intervention

  • The school needed two additional classrooms and a library.
  • The auditorium was being used to conduct one class, and the computer room was being used for another, students constantly being shuttled around to adjust to the various needs of the classes.
  • The auditorium was being rented out occasionally to generate some income for the school. 
  • The “library” was basically two wooden cabinets with a handful of books.

After OSAAT Intervention

  • The school has 2 new classrooms, providing a huge relief to the issue of space management.
  • The newly built library is spacious and well equipped, so kids can actually sit there and study.
