Challenge

The Ammen Preschool in the village of Thambilivil was completely destroyed in the tsunami. There is currently a makeshift shelter where informal construction is being held.

Solution

We are currently building our first two schools in the eastern region of Ampara. Each of the schools will be 24 feet by 14 feet with brick walls and a tiled roof. There will be wrought iron grills on the windows for security and fresh, cool air.

Long-Term Impact

The new school will be located 600 meters inland on the grounds of the existing junior/secondary school Kalai Magal School.

Additional Documentation

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