Thanks to the generosity of our donors we have been gradually able to increase services offered to the students at Elsa Primary School. During the last twelve months, an onsite toilet has been built, a second teacher has been employed and a daily nutrition program for the students has been implemented. As well, the students have been taken on excursions in the local area.
More recently, with the onset of winter in Bodhgaya, we have been able to provide the students with warm sweaters for the first time. The students chose the colour and design of the sweaters and as you can see in the accompanying photos, they are very happy to be wearing them. In future, when funding is sufficient, we hope to be able to provide full school uniforms.
Soon, Global Giving will be providing opportunities for those wishing to support Elsa Primary School to maximize their donations. I will keep you posted about this.
