IMMEDIATE RELEASE: February 5, 2018

CONTACT: Xandie Kuenning, Girls’ Education Intern | xandiek.iphd@gmail.com

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.
