In Poilwa school, there are in total 12 teachers and about 140 children in the school, including the children from Baalwadis (Kindergarten). In the middle school (class 4 to class 8), there are 52 boys and 38 girls.
Currently there is one toilet for middle school girls and one for the primary school girls. Considering the amount of girl children, the existing facilities are not sufficient and children are facing difficulties because of this. Hence it is proposed to construct additional toilet, which can be used by primary and middle school girls.
To construct additional girls toilet
"Prodigals Home" based in Dimapur works with the local communities to address their problems to achieve sustainable development for the communities. Over the years, it has been involved in the issues of treatments and rehabilitation of drug and alcoholic addicts. It also works in the fields of Community Health in general, Women and Child Development, Rural Development, Research and Documentation and facilitation and mentoring of upcoming Grass Root organizations. The organisation also addresses the problem of the marginalised senior citizens and PWDs (persons with disability) and the issue of human trafficking.

The organisation is helping Ms. Vitono Haralu, who has taken up the task of improving infrastructure in Poilwa government school with the help of Asha Frankfurt.
