Why New Building ?
The current school building has been ravaged by the monsoon floods and is in disrepair. A new building is required to provide the proper infrastructure for the mentally-challenged children of the Opportunity School.
1) The capacity of the school will be increased from 145 to 180 students, who will be benefit from the special education and vocational training.
2) Female students will receive employment in the school premises.
3) Male students will be placed in jobs outside of the school.
The school facilities aim to give services to 180 students from 15 kms around Vepery, and surrounding places such as purasawalkam, Doveton, Kelley’s, medavakkam, Ayanavaram, Anna Nagar, Perambur etc.,
In order to protect the building funds and to maintain the integrity of the account, all project funds shall be deposited in a bank account from where at least two signatures are required to withdraw the funds for project implementation. The bank account is monitored by the local board and by the directors of SOSMC.
