Villagers construct two classrooms for Lower Primary School in Arunachal Pradesh
Residents of Darne village near Romdum town in the East Siang district of Arunachal Pradesh constructed two classrooms for the Lower Primary School to remedy the shortage of classrooms.
The residents, led by social worker Maklung Apum, constructed the classrooms by utilising donated CGI sheets, cement, sand, gravel, iron rods, wiring and bamboo.
The residents voluntarily rendered their services for free with no government funds.
Meanwhile, the headteacher of the school, M. Megu, donated Rs. 5,000 to purchase refreshments for the villagers as a gesture of appreciation.
“On behalf of all the students and teaching community, I am very grateful to Maklung Apum and the villagers of Darne for their generosity and immense concern for the school which was short of classrooms,” Megu said.
Meanwhile, the Deputy Director of School Education of East Siang District, Jongge Yirang, lauded the villagers for taking such an initiative.
“Such voluntary help to the school by the villagers without depending and waiting for government funds will inspire others not only in Mebo or East Siang district area but also to the people across the whole of the state,” Yirang said.
