Joined Yunnan Primary School Project
|Celebrating MTO's 15th birthday in year 2003, we took that chance to also initiate a charitable project in rural China (Yunnan Province) under coordination of the company Sowers Action Ltd. To learn more about the charity work of Sowers Action, please click here. With support of our partner organisations and suppliers, we raised around RMB 260,000.-, which together with a subsidy of the Mainland Chinese government had been used to completely rebuild the Da Fu Primary School in Yunnan Province. The total costs for the school reconstruction summed up to around 350,000.- RMB.
The Da Fu Primary School was founded in 1975. Currently there are 6 classrooms, 208 students and 12 teachers. The school is located in a remote rural area without electricity and water supply. After 28 years the structural condition of the school had reached unacceptable levels (see pictures below). Even the mainland Chinese government had ranked this school as being in dangerous conditions and reconstruction was urged.
The total area of the reconstruction site is 727.79 m2. A total of 3 new buildings had been constructed. One two-storey building for classrooms, one two-storey building for student and teacher dormitories and one building housing the sanitary facilities.
The project was started in April 2003 and was completed in July 2003.
