Creates safe classrooms to improve student attendance and academic performance. This intervention upgrades the school's infrastructure and facilitates the availability of basic necessities like electricity, water, drainage etc.
It has been found that the physical conditions of school buildings have an impact on students’ interest in classroom studies. Nirmaan works to provide the best possible solutions to improve existing school infrastructure by making it safer, accessible and conducive to learning; thereby making conscious efforts to reduce the risk posed due to poor infrastructure to children and other school stakeholders in KEF partner schools.
We aim to accomplish our vision through the following methodologies:
We carry out structural audits and implement the remedies suggested in the form of plastering, painting, tiling, replacement of roof, windows, doors, etc. making the schools sturdier and safer not only functionally but aesthetically.
Nirmaan has replaced asbestos which are detrimental to health with PUF panels. The new roofs are leak-proof, have heat insulation properties that help to reduce temperatures, are fireproof and have a low maintenance cost.
Rainwater from the roof has also been channelized and discharged appropriately thereby avoiding the accumulation of water and breeding of mosquitoes.
Installation of water purifiers ensuring clean and pure drinking water and renovation of existing toilet blocks are two major activities undertaken by us.
Over 4 years, Nirmaan has provided a conducive learning environment in 18 partner schools. Also, in its endeavor to offer a safe, healthy and functional environment, Nirmaan has provided furniture and electrical fixtures in 45 schools.
