Govt Lower Primary School, Alambadi, Chamrajanagar district, Karnataka
With only one classroom, a lone tree outside was the only other shaded place for children to sit, read, play and learn under the scorching sun. Existing toilets were of poor quality and for the children, it was quite literally ‘nature’s call’ when required. The lone existing building also had lots of cracks and plaster chipping or falling off.
OSAAT engagement was motivated by the following elements:
– School infrastructure clearly needed improvement
– Potential to improve Student strength with better infrastructure.
– This particular remote tribal community’s needs in terms of education were being ignored by the rest.
2 toilets have been built with children’s safety and hygiene in mind.
A Budget of about Rs 10 Lakhs has been spent for the school and project has been completed and delivered on time.
Each classroom, has also been provided with new chalkboards, ceiling fans and lighting.
Keeping in view of the conditions in the Hamlet, we decided to construct a simple school
building – which would give shelter to kids and small respite in summer
We used concrete blocks with no outside plaster, PUF panelled roof to keep temperatures
lower and lower maintenance costs.
teacher already in place for 2 yrs – paid every month by Indiasudar.
