In February 2016 committeemembers Margriet and Rutger travelled to the school for a working visit. Controlling, planning, concluding contracts and renewing of the personal contacts have been very important again. They found everything very much ok.
The schoolbuilding is complete now: 8 classrooms and a big hall (also to be used as two classrooms). It is a magnificent new building and the people of the school and the villagers are very proud of it! An inner schoolyard, a gallery, an office, a computerrroom and a small library make the school very modern and well equipped.
In 2016 a simple version of a digital whiteboard will be installed. That means great progress for the school again.
At last: schooleducation
The school started bringing to school of 50 children of the far away villages Bamnora and Beniganj. No one of these children attended school before. In India as a whole still 38 million children have no access to schooleducation! Within 2 years all 150 children of these villages will go to school. From 2018/2019 about 450 students will become their education in Kashi School.
Kashi Mandir School functions independent and atonomously froms the foundation. The plan is to let exist the school on its own feet from 2018/2019. The foundation will diminish its contributions and support and in the end stop the fundraising and donations. Much depends also on the implementation of financing by the government all over India in the coming years.
