Saint-Gobain India Foundation supports School Building Project at Bangalore
As a part of its socially responsible actions, the Saint- Gobain India Foundation (SGIF) provided support in improving existing infrastructure at Sarkari Kannada Prathamik School Cheemasandra, a Government school in Bangalore. The Foundation facilitated construction of two new classrooms adjacent to the existing school premises to enable enrolment of new students. The newly constructed classrooms were officially handed over to the school staff on 27th November, 2017.
Located in the Cheemasandra village, close to Grindwell
Norton’s (GNO) Bangalore factory, the school has been
conducting classes from nursery till the fifth standard. Prior to the construction of the new classrooms, all the classes, with a total count of about 100 kids, were conducted in three rooms. This was done by clubbing of two or more batches into one classroom. The increase in the enrolment of students, which escalated to 150 in 2017, made it difficult for the school staff to manage day-to-day classes with the existing infrastructure. With a view to resolve this crisis, SGIF initiated construction of the new classrooms in June 2017.
SGIF partnered with GNO’s PEG (Project Engineering Group) for this very first project near GNO’s Bangalore factory. Support was provided for end-to-end construction of the new infrastructure. This included concreting, slab reinforcement, wall plastering, fixing doors and windows, terrace water proofing, electrical fittings, drainage arrangements and painting. Going forward, the Foundation and PEG team plan to support more such value- adding projects.
