Current Update, October, 2020:

The school has celebrated the opening of the new classroom paid for by TOUCH contributors. This has been very helpful for the students to have an additional classroom. The only concern is that one of the teachers has tested positive for the virus which caused a classroom to quarantine. Take a look at these photos including the courtyard with outdoor latrine and a broken pipe in 2006 and the same site in September 2020 with a brick courtyard and the new classroom in the backyard.
