We have constructed classrooms, built and equipped laboratories and acquired learning material. We also have teachers and staff who we pay every month and at the end of the year, we offer bonuses to teachers who did some extra work. We carry out renovation of the school campus each year. In the future, we plan to construct a playground. Presently, we are constructing a wall to support a rock so that it should not roll over one day and crush children in class. This is because the school is located in a sloppy, rocky area.

Our relationship with the school authorities is very smooth. They help us to work well and ensure that we help them also meet standards. Every year, we give them a report of our activities. So far, we have not had any quarrels. We always work as partners and try to iron out our differences for the good of the school.
