• Survey of old School:
We build tremors destroyed and damaged old buildings of government primary schools. Every single step right from identifying the school to environment viability goes through rigorous check and surveys.
The various phases of survey of old school include knowing about the requirement of the:
o Primary School and Number of Students
o Land availability
o Review, scrutiny and sanction by Government and
o Damaged building should be at least 50 years old or more.
o Support of Villagers
• Foundation Ceremony:
We raise awareness and solicit participation to identify schools whose building have been either damaged or deteriorated beyond repair. Solicit participation of the villagers of concerned village in constructing new building for their school. After receiving required clearance from the state government, Project ‘Life’ organizes foundation stone laying ceremony of the new school building. Foundation stone is laid by the donor/s or member of the donor family in the presence of the villagers.
As they realize that the new building is likely to improve an overall learning experience of their children, villagers happily collaborate to make the project their own. They welcome guests in the traditional way and students perform cultural event which forms a part of the ceremony.
• Construction Process:
The state-of-the-art school building constructed by Project ‘Life’ adhere to the highest standards of building and construction engineering.
RCC frame forms the contours of the building. Good facilities for ventilation and natural lighting. A typical class-room has carpet area of 400 sq.ft. and total built-up area of 700 sq. ft. The height of roof from the floor around 12 feet, with windows allowing adequate ventilation. Separate toilet blocks for girls and boys, provision of drinking water, sports equipment, playground, compound-wall, etc. for a part of every school built by Project ‘Life’.
• Dedication Ceremony:
Once the construction and furnishing of the new building is completed, Project ‘Life’ organizes traditional ceremony to formally dedicate the school to the village. Donor/s and their family members, eminent personalities, Government officials, villagers and students participate in gala ceremony function followed by the colorful cultural program by students and followed by gala lunch organized by villagers.
