New School Building Complete

By Margery Poitras | Development Coordinator

Lin Phon village is in its 5th year of partnership with Shanta Foundation. A new school building was identified as a priority infrastructure project. The VDT and the infrastructure committee developed a proposal and submitted it to Shanta, requesting $12,000 and promising a community contribution of $3,830, or over 25% of the overall expenditure. Each of the 56 houses in the village will contribute 80,000 kyats ($38), with an additional 3,618,000 kyats ($1,700) coming from the village-owned community fund. 

The building required an additional $7,200 in order to be completed. Shanta determined that Lin Phon is not an abundant community, but the village was inspired to contribute more from their side. Consequently, Shanta contributed an additional $3,600, and the community contributed an additional $3,600. The overall cost was $23,100, with Shanta contributing $15,600 and the community contributing $7,500.

As a result, the primary school building project of a 90’x30’x12′ concrete building with four classrooms and one office space was completed in June 2023!
