This project deals with the construction of a classroom in the primary school in Muthireddygudem, Nalagonda dist. Andhra Pradesh.

Muthireddygudem is situated about 35 miles east of Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh. The highway 202 is just 4 miles away and the famous Hindu pilgrimage centre Yadagirigutta is just 1½ miles away.

The terrain is hilly and soil red. There is no major source of water for irrigation in this village. Borewells have levels from 50-200 feet below the ground. One major problem of this village is that the fluoride content is high. Most of the resident of the village (about 6 %) are below the poverty line and illiteracy is around 58 % . But there is no child labor issues here and all children go to the government school .

In this school, 200 poor children from the lower economic class come to study. Although the school has 1½ acre of land, the building is totally inadequate with only 3 rooms in all. The furniture is either not there or is in need of urgent repair. There are 5 teachers whose motivation level is high.

Right now children of different grades are cramped up into one classroom. So Asha has come forward and help this school for the construction of one classroom. The government has agreed to fund the construction of another classroom.
The aim of this project is to provide the poor children with a conducive environment to study and to facilitate their learning experience.
