With the support of donors and crowd funding via Milaap, we’ve been able to raise sufficient funds for the construction of two new toilet blocks at Semmangudi Higher Secondary School. At present there are only 10 toilets for the entire school of 1300 children. This lack of adequate toilet facilities has been a primary reason for dropouts especially among adolescent girls; many students often forgo their entire lunch break to stand in queues to use the toilets. A few donors from the USA also stepped forward to help construct a new office room block for the school. The bhoomi pooja was recently performed and the construction of the two projects will begin this month.
