The school is fully functional, equipped with dedicated space for learning and classroom infrastructure. More learning materials, teachings aids, computers etc., will be added to this in the future. Classes began with an initial batch of 7 children, which has now increased to 31, mostly from families of daily wage earners, from the village. We are in the process of evaluating and welcoming more children to the school.
