On 29 July 2017 our team consisting of Rahul sonawane and Founder Santosh Phad visited Z.P. school at Badakwasti, Tq. Sillod, Aurangabad . We got a request from school teachers Mr.Vishasir and Mr.Prakash sir (Prakash Rajput & Vishal Tipramwar ) to install StudyMall in there school.
This school is model school for entire Maharashtra region which is having DigitalClass running on solar source, Water storage, Separate Dining area for kids, beautiful paintings and lots of trees in school compound. The infrastructure included at Z.P.School was 2 RCC classrooms for 1st to 4th standard students. Electricity supply from solar system and 1 classroom with digital Led TV . Everything done with the help of teachers, villagers and students.
This type of model school infrastructure got us excited which we saw in our primary visit (pre-visit) . We were inspired by the hardwork and passion put in by everyone in this school. We then decided to pitch in to help them more.
And we Launched StudyMall on 07 Oct 2017 in this school.
This StudyMall provides computer from Samhita (http://www.samhita.org/) , Toys from ToyBank (http://toybank.in/) , Dolls made by kids for kids sent by Msterio.org (dolla are sent by kids from all over world https://www.msterio.org/) wonderful story books by Pratham books (http://www.prathambooks.org/) and other crafts and arts material .
