MARG TO CONSTRUCT A GIRL'S HOSTEL

MARG has been supporting...
            Project Ghar

MARG has been supporting children from several villages and small towns for the past two years. We now plan to set up a small girls’ hostel at Maria Basti for the children from Kange, Maria Basti, Dukka, Changsing and other neighboring villages, who walk for almost two to three hours to reach the only High School in Kange.


At the meeting held in August 2008, the community put forward the request of constructing a hostel in Maria Basti as it is equidistance from all other villages.


The problem of land was solved when the Cluny sisters working in that area offered a plot where the proposed hostel could be constructed. The community came to a conclusion that the sisters have been doing a great job in bringing discipline in the lives of the children of that area by running a small hostel for the past several years.


This proposed hostel would cater to children from disadvantaged sections of society. Hostel fee will be nominal. Special care would be given to needy children. A committee comprising panchayat members from the neighboring villages, local academia and eminent citizens would help the sisters in the running of the hostel.


MARG will remain associated with the project only for initial six months. After that the sole responsibility of running the project will be of the sisters and hostel committee. The hostel plans to accommodate a total of 22 children.


Keeping in mind the rough terrain and transportation costs, it has been estimated that a cost of Rs 200.000 will be incurred on the construction of 30 ft x 20 ft building, using the locally made hollow blocks with concrete flooring and a tin roof. 


We are taking this step only because of assurance from some of our well wishers and sponsors.
