This village is outside the city of Forbesganj near the Nepal boarder. The rural literacy rate in this part of northern India is just over 40% so the need for early childhood education in literacy development is very important.
Phase 3 construction will be the provision of teacher housing. In developing world schools the provision of teacher housing is a key aspect of the schools success. Teacher housing directly correlates with student attendance and enrolment because 1) Teachers living on campus show up for work more regularly 2) Teachers who are given teacher housing are able to offset a portion of income need by reducing or eliminating the need for rent income 3) Teacher housing provides 24/7 site security for the school.
