Anpu Cholai Preschool
Vasantham Vision Trust
We need an eco-friendly design for a two classroom school with a kitchen, toilets and office. Though the land we have is huge, the cost of construction in Sri Lanka is high and we need a good design that is able to cut down construction costs.
Development and empowerment through education and skills training.
We have set the budget as $45000 SGD/ 4.5 Sri Lankan Rupees. We have the funds available for the building but have not gotten a satisfactory plan.
The school (In a makeshift structure) currently stands on land that has been specially allocated for school use only. Our organisation has the written permission and documents from the district secretariat, giving approvals for the use of the land by our organisation to build up the school. Our organisation will also be managing the school.
5000 Sri Lankan rupees per square feet.
We are able to host in terms of transportation in Sri Lanka (Land), translation and safety but will be unable to pay for flight tickets etc.
Single storey building with two good sized classrooms, two childrens toilet, 1 adult toilet, one office space and one kitchen to prepare meals.
The classrooms have to be divided by a divider so the divider can be pulled back to merge the two classrooms into 1 when a bigger space is needed, e.g hall space for all the children to gather.
The area is prone to flooding.
We hope to start the construction by end of June and complete it before the monsoon season in November. The villagers will also be helping in terms of manpower so this is a workable timeline.
