This project seeks to change the reality faced by the students of this institution, in regard to their feeding, mental and physical health, by increasing the capacity of their dining room as it only has 8 tables and 70 chairs, but the total student population goes up to 600 students, which provides them with a short and limited time to feed themselves.

total goal
monthly donors


This project will contribute to improve the infrastructure limitations of the institution's dining room as it does not meet the required needs of the student population. Also, will contribute to improve the overall experience of the students at the dining room.


With the development of a second floor for the dining room, the institution will be able to include more chairs and tables, which will reduce long waiting lines and improve the overall experience of the 600 students in general when visiting the dining room.

Long-Term Impact

The improvement and extension of this dining room will have a long-term impact, as thousands of students of an entire decade will be able to enjoy and benefit from the extension of this piece of infrastructure.

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a PDF file (projdoc.pdf).
