This grant will enable Prashanti International School (PIS) to provide quality education kindergarten through high school for indigent and fatherless children from Puri and surrounding villages, with an emphasis on English language learning and building strong values. It will include (1) necessary facility upgrades and required security features required to qualify for certification as an English education high school; (2) teacher training to improve skills in incorporating English into all curriculum areas and relevant computer literacy, hygiene education, and Education for Human Values. Currently there are 250 students K-8th grade, but enrollment will gradually increase each year. It is expected to grow to over 400 students in three years.
This project needs to receive some pledges to go to the next level. Please check the "Financing" tab to see the list of current pledges. Once the amount pledged is equal to the project budget, the status of the project will be automatically changed to "Fully Pledged". Click here to pledge support for this project.
Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
