Background information

The Future Village had initially planned to help change the roof of Shree Jyanodaya Primary School located in Katunge Village Ward 9. Plans are made to change the roof so as to allow more natural light into the classroom.

However, due to the many years of rain and shine, the school buiilding was facing the danger of collapse. The school had a simple structure (of stones and logs) which housed a total of 150 pupils from Primary One to Primary Five.

There was an urgent need to rebuild the school before it were to collapse in the coming monsoon season and the funds provided by the government was still not sufficient, even though the villagers were willing to work for free to cut down the cost of construction. Upon hearing the news, Future Village began a donation drive and collected the needed sum within 10 days and the reconstruction of the school began in May 2007.
