Classrooms are going up…

Tuesday, June 26th, 2012

The building of the second floor Lumkyntung classrooms is in full swing.

As we had mentioned in a previous post, after adding two classrooms in 2011, the number of students in this little village school almost doubled, going from 48 students to 82.

We also anticipate a large turnout of new students when the new school year starts in Feb 2013 after the current classrooms we are building right now are completed.

Our goal is to enable this little village school to have enough space to eventually provide the students opportunities to attend higher grades, and eventually up to Matriculation from high school.

Between now and the end of August 2012, the team is working on completing the following milestones:

  1. Casting of slab.
  2. Hollow block walling.
  3. Plastering of all the walls both inside and outside inclusive of partition of two rooms in the 2nd floor.

The final phase which is targeted for Sept-Oct 2012 includes the fitting of doors, windows, skylights, painting and general cleanup.

Below are pictures of some of the children as ell as the work in progress… (Keep in mind that some of the small posts in building are being used as placemakers, they are not the actual materials for construction of the building).

If you like what we are doing and would like to be involved in helping these children get an education, you can Donate Here. (Thank you in advance).
