Current issues and actions:
Due to the type of roofing, it is getting very hot inside the rooms during the months of March to July (of course the school is closed for summer for a couple of months in between)
Since we donâ€™t have a fence protection around the school premises, kids are entering bushes behind the school building
We have now started a crash action:
New improvements in school infrastructure
As of January 2009, Foundation school is hosting 51 kids between ages 4 and 6 in Pallipalem. We have recently refurbished the class rooms with brand new furniture, good flooring and paints. Every effort is made to make the school present a ‘feel good’ factor to kids.
New toilets are functioning and the kids are falling in to hygienic habbits under the super vision of trained house staff.
Inauguration of the Foundation school facility
A major first step in realization of the Foundation’s commitment to build sustainable rural development process, has been achieved on the 15th of August 2008 in Pallipalem village. In the presence of children, parents and well wishers, the ribbons were cut to formally open the class rooms.
Mr L.P. Vajapayee, Chief Editor from the print and electronic media, Mr. C.V.L. Narasimha Rao, Advocate, Mr. Ramakrishna, General Manager of Hotel Anand Regency have graced the occasion and extended their blessings to the kids and support to the foundation. It is heartening to note that these three eminent people, have committed to join the movement and broaden the impact in the village to grow it as a model village. The school now has two class rooms (for the age groups of 3 to 5), 4 toilets and ample space as play ground. At this moment, some finishing touches to the building are still required; however we decided to commission the school since the all practical elements are already taken care of.

Industrial training for youth
One of the pre-requisites for setting up rural enterprises is to provide training to rural youth in real industrial world. This will enable them to learn the tips and tricks of the industry and trade so that they can take the knowledge back to villages. Adding knowledge and skills to the spirited youth, will prepare them better for rural industry setup.
