On 27 June 2017 we opened our fifth project at Chorwaghalgaon village which helps 225 students. Chorwaghalgoan is a small village in Vaijapur taluqa, District Aurangabad. Our volunteer Mr.Amol Nikam introduced us to the Village and helped us by being our point of contact with the Z.P. Prathamik School, Chorwaghalgaon. One of other key supporter to make this entire project possible is Mr.Pankaj Salunke.
This StudyMall is set up in the Z.P. Prathamik School, village Chorwaghalgaon which enrolls children from 1st to 7th standard. The school has total 7 classrooms out of which only 2 are RCC. Total number of teachers is 8. This school has 225 students, 108 boys and 113 girls. School timing is from 9.30 to 4 pm and Saturday is half day.

We met school teachers, had dialogue with school children, parents and Village school committee members to understand the gap and the need in the educational requirements of this children.
