Building happy schools
When we visited the Panchayat Union Primary School in Kannampalayam, the first thing that caught our eyes was the ruined infrastructure. The toilets were barely functional, the school compound was full of overgrown shrubs and the one existing classroom was in a severe state of disrepair. The effects of cyclone Vardah were visible even after two years. Had it not been for our intervention, the school would have been shut down and children moved to a library with no toilets.
We have now rebuilt the school and brought about behavioural change in the children through volunteers.
Chola MS supported the interventions at this school through their CSR funds.
