In May 2019 a grant of €6,000 was provided to the Sacred Heart School, Pereharla, Guntur, Andhra Pradesh for the acquisition of benches and desks.
Pupils attending the school are mostly from very poor families – some are orphans. Their parents/guardians were not in position to fund the purchase of these items with the children having to remain seated on the floors.
However, as will be seen from the pictures below, the children’s situation has been greatly transformed since the acquisition and installation of the benches and desks. They can now be seated in their classrooms with their respective teachers which is a much more comfortable and conducive learning environment for them.
