The new projects resulted simply from emerging needs of our village schools and local temples.
We funded a new library for the village school because the old one was bursting at the seams and no books were available for the secondary school. With this school, we are still in contact and could help with other requests, such as financing of musical instruments, textbooks, and other construction projects.
The entire dilapidated classroom building of the local temple was extensively refurbished and, as well as the school library, equipped with new furniture. For the temple school, we were able to finance the new playground in recent years and have participated in the maintenance costs.
Our most current project is the construction of a small community center, which also houses a Montessori nursery school. The local Social Committee approached us in this respect. The construction works themselves were self-financed as far as possible. We could provide most of the financial resources. In this project, we now take care of the monthly salary of the teacher and her assistant, as well as for the teaching materials. We are also responsible for the ongoing maintenance costs.
But we are partners not only for those major projects. We help locals, whenever we can, with their requests for assistance: for example, medical costs like for an operation, a hearing aid or for the purchase of expensive drugs that are not covered by the state health care.
