Banyang Village Hamlet 5 Primary School

MarchWith a grant provided by the British Embassy Small Grants Scheme, DORS was able to assist Banyang Hamlet 5 to rebuild their mud brick primary school. The simple school building now has two whitewashed classrooms and a teachers office, with well fitting wooden framed windows and doors.

Plans were drawn up by the villagers and approved by the Township Government. Villagers used their horses to transport the construction materials. This involved a seven hour round trip that climbs 1000m up a steep mountain path from the road below. The local people provided labour for the project. Mr Li Tian Jun, the school teacher who managed the project, said the school building is now 'a thousand times better'.

Without this rebuilding the school would probably have had to close down, which would have left these 16 children unable to attend school, as the nearest school is a three hour walk away.
The total cost of the school rebuilding in materials was 10,380 RMB or 800 GBP.
