About the School:


School has been running for the past 10 years. There are no facilities in the school other than the school building which is a 2-floor one in 150 sq. yd. compound.

To be precise there are only two rooms and two verandahs (including the first floor). 1 to 5 classes have to be run in two classrooms and a verandah. The verandah in the first floor was used by Urdu school students (Urdu school has been shifted to another location from 2011 Academic year).

As the verandah is open, children suffer a lot in the winter season with the freezing breeze.

Including the present Headmistress all the teachers are new to this school, deputed to this school in June-July '2010. 

Teachers approached the Corporator to consider and sanction funds to the school. They approached Loksatta members as well. But there has been no progress.  TMAD is the first NGO which visited the school.


Requirements:

Infrastructure:


Need to cover the shed inside the compound and to close the verandah on one side and to keep grill on the three sides.

- TMAD approached CapitalIQ to consider this school for their GVD project. Many thanks to Sreenivas Prasad for informing us about GVD (Global Volunteer Day). Many Thanks to Sri Prabhakar Kotapati for approving the project and for assigning Erraiah, associate of CapitalIQ, as Lead for this project. Special thanks to Erraiah for executing this project exceptionally well.

On 18th July, CapitalIQ associates visited the school, did painting and clean up and engaged the children. Our TMAD volunteers, Naresh, Sarath and Naveen also partiicipated in this event.
