As of Republic Day, Jan. 26, the girls attending the Girls’ Government Primary School in Bhikamkor no longer have to sit on the floor during class.
To succeed in school, children need a proper learning environment. Thanks largely to the support of Girls’ Education intern Olivia Arnold, IPHD was able to purchase 20 desk sets in addition to 2 teachers’ tables and 4 teachers’ stools to help create this setting in the Girls’ Government Primary School in Bhikamkor.
The newly-furnished classrooms were officially reopened on Republic Day with ceremony celebrating education and a ribbon cutting by the Sarpanch (elected village leader). The additions to the school were also covered by a local newspaper.
IPHD is now looking towards improving the school facilities in other ways, including providing the students with a drinking water facility.
