For a long time, this school have long been deteriorating, negatively affecting the education of many children in the area. The whole facility is a temporary building in poor condition and some of the classrooms cannot be used due to heavy damage. The building’s structure is also no longer solid and stable, presenting imminent danger to the students and the teachers while studying at school. The school is in remote area which made it difficult for people to approach except the local residents living in the neighborhood. However, the situation has changed thanks to the support from REE Corporation that shed light on kids studying here and many more generations to come as they are provided a better opportunity to further their learning path.
