A New Classroom Building
Our current challenge is to build a new classroom building for the Kaun Khlong Primary School. The first 5-room building was finished in September 2011.
The temple that is adjacent to the school donated the land for the new building. In July 2009 we financed a project to prepare the land for the new classroom. This involved moving fill from a pit (which was developed into a pond) to the school site. The pond is now used by the villagers for drinking water, laundry, and raising fish. This project cost $4419. We received a nice letter from the School Principal and Commune Chief thanking us for funding the project.
Village and school officials held a series of meetings to determine the specifications for the new building:
- 9 classrooms
- 1 library
- 1 bathroom
The first 5-classroom building is complete, thanks to 205 generous contributors and an interest-free loan from our dear friend, Katy Guard.
