We are building a small scale project to integrate a laboratory and library in a government school. We have a massively supportive school who are willing to provide space but that requires a lot of elements and a lot of help.
What do we need ?
The main requirement for the library and lab is mostly funds and a few helping hands literally.
Monetary requirements are needed for:
- Repurposing wooden planks for shelves
- Light bulbs
- Repair for infrastructure of library- fix leakage and chipping
- Electrical work for computer setup
- Funds for perishable science lab equipment
Why do we need these?
After a rigorous season of calling for book donations, we have received close to 600 books for our library across genres. With so many books, it is important that these treasures are in a safe dry place.
Currently there are a lot of damages in the room provided for us. There is rainwater seepage from the ceilings. The water droplets have brought a lot of fungus and mold on books.
Apart from leakage, the ceiling also is pretty weak and bits of the wall can be seen scraping off or on the floor. The whole infrastructure needs a huge hand for it becomes the spine for everything we can build inside of it.
There are only a few cupboards but a few of them have rusted. They need to be replaced with shelves which are a bit safer. There are a few planks of wood that are from broken benches. They can be replaced and refurbished into standing shelves. But it requires some help in terms of handiwork as well as some expertise in installing the shelves.
There are plenty of wirings across the rooms. They have the accommodation to have tube lights and fans but the room had been stripped of all equipment when it was decided that classrooms get priority. To be able to have a fully functional zone, we need a few bulbs and help with repair work.
A new computer lab is also in the making and we have received a few systems. We require some electrical work that needs to be done.
How will it help us?
It will provide a healthy and safe environment for our children to learn and grow without worrying about not having a space to learn. A high school with a science & technology lab and library will equip our students to catch up to the fast paced needs of the 21st century world.
Right now, the space that we have for lab and library require a lot of love, attention and some funding to build into a space that we envision. We know an enriching environment like this would help them spread their wings and reach their dreams.
