This school is located in union council Shohal Mazullah and district Mansehra. This is single story building which is under construction. It is planned to have the following:

  • (1) Playground with boundary wall
  • (1) Principal's office
  • (7) Classrooms
  • (1) Computer lab
  • (1) Library
  • (3) Washrooms

85% of the construction work has now been completed with more and more being finished every day! As work is proceeding along quickly, the construction should be completed within the estimated time. Boundary wall plaster, roof & window protection, main gate work, bathroom & veranda insulation, stairs, drainage system installation, electricity fitting, and playground leveling are just some of the things that have been initiated and nearly completed. Here is an update on the process of each part of the construction:

  • School building construction - 85 %
  • Playground leveling - 90%
  • Front & back retaining wall - 95%
  • Building plaster work - 90%
  • Door & window frames - 85%
  • Boundary wall construction - 80%
  • Classroom flooring - 100%
  • Bathroom flooring - in process
  • Bathroom partition walls - in process
  • Water tanks - 50%
  • Septic tank & soakage pit - 100%
  • Sewerage line & drainage system - in process
  • White base - 100% (ready for paint)

It has been exciting to see the progress of the school construction. The children can hardly wait to start at the new school. Please share this report/story to all that you know about what a difference these funds are making. We still have a ways to go so help the construction finish the last 15% of work!
