The Trust has been asked by the Board and Teachers of Montessori Junior High School in Pant Nagar, to fund the extension of 5 new classrooms and 6 toilets with washing facilities. Currently there is not enough room for the students, aged 6-14 years, who attend. The toilet and washing facilities are extremely inadequate. The children all come from poor farm, road and factory labourers’ families. The extension will not only provide more space for the children attending but will allow an intake increase, offering places to children from nearby villages who are unable to go to school. The female teachers who run the school are keen to promote education for girls, thus the fees are lower for the girls here, in order to encourage their families to send them.
