Thank you for supporting our initiative to build a good campus for our children in Dundigal. We started construction in Sphoorti Campus in 2014 and after 7 years, we have more than 40,000 sq.ft built up area. We have been able to accommodate more than 200 children along with facilities like computer lab with 20 computers, library with 8000 books.
We are planning to add another 2 rooms in the next three months to the older building.
In September, we will be constructing a huge School building. 2 months ago, we received permission to run our own school from Nursery to STD VII . We have hired 5 teachers so far to teach the children who are in campus. We are also helping the STD VIII, IX and X children follow online classes. They are also being helped by our teachers. in coordination with the teachers from ZPHS Gowdavally. Some of the rooms which were earlier used as dorms and storerooms have been converted into classrooms. We have all the furniture in place.
We are also preparing to start construction of a separate school. I am attaching the pics of the exterior design. The school has 4 floors each measuring about 16000 Sq.ft. We are going to adopt Green Building Concepts in construction and aim for LEED Platinum or Gold Certification.
The total expected cost of construction is around Rs 13 Cr. So far, our projects have been able to garner enough support. I am hopeful that we would be able to raise enough for this project as well in a reasonable time. This school will be gradually opened to underprivileged children from the neighboring communities. We will strive to provide them a great learning environment.
We have applied for permission from the Dundigal Municipality.
Thank you everyone for helping us continue our service activities during the challenging Covid times.
We successfully completed the Hostel block for staff members on Dassera Oct 25th, 2020. Since then, we have been working on completing other pending construction work like an extension of the compound wall outside the Girls Block.
We have applied for permission for our own School on the Dundigal campus. We expect the process to culminate by the end of this month. We will be able to set up the school in June 2021.
To make sure the school has enough infrastructure, we are starting the addition of more classrooms in the Main Scphoorti Building. This consists of adding a complete floor on the top of the existing structure and the addition of a few bathrooms behind the building. The total expected cost is $280,000
We seek your blessings and support to this initiative.
By the way, our Forest is growing well. From next year, it will be able to take care of itself.
Thank you so much for your support to Sphoorti, unstinted, every month. Your generosity helps us focus on the welfare of children instead of getting stressed about financial resources.
In July 2020, we focused on keeping in touch with children who have been repatriated to their legal guardians. We have also made sure that there is no financial burden on some of the family members because of their wards staying at home for more than 4 months. In some cases, we sent money and in some instances, we provided grocery kits to those who could visit Sphoorti campus.
Through friends like you, we have been able to provide gadgets like Laptop and mobiles to some of our children who are attending online classes at STD XI and XII level.
A big news for July has been a donation of $18,000 for classrooms for our proposed Sphoorti Model school. The donor organization is US-based Guru Krupa Foundation which earlier supported construction of 4 rooms.
The Covid situation in Hyderabad and vicinity is not good. We hope that things will be back to normal in September/October. Meanwhile, we are procuring the necessary infrastructure for our school - dual desks, chairs, storage etc. A friend has donated a 55 in Television and another friend has offered to give 5 Projectors when our school starts functioning. We also received a donation of Rs 5 Lakhs for school from V-Guard last month.
In August, we stated laying roads in our campus. In addition, construction of Staff Quarters Block is nearing completion.
