New Project at “Vechalam” School(s): 217 students
Elementary school with 56 students, High School with 161 students

Partnership with Village and local community: On Sept 27th, 2012 Siri pledged Rs.17,000 to fix water supply for toilets (restrooms). There was a need to fix the playground too, at the same meeting the community responded with Rs50,000 and school administration pledged Rs10,000.

Another interesting story unfolded during the execution of this project. A year ago Govt. of Andhra Pradesh initiated a program called “Jala Mani” for safe drinking water at rural schools. The supplied equipment worth Rs 1,00,000 was eating dust and not installed for over a year. With the pledge from Siri now the school has purified drinking water supply and running water for toilets.

It’s an astonishing net social effect of Rs 1,77,000 from a small idea & pledge of Rs17,000 and solved three long pending problems for the school – A safe drinking water, water supply for Toilets and a new playground with fence.
