According to the report, all construction materials (sand, chips, and bricks) have already been transported to the construction site. The responsibility of workers’ supervision and management has been delegated to the campus chief and the college coordinator is responsible for overseeing construction. Wall construction and plasterwork on the first floor was completed during the first phase. The project is currently in its final phase. T
The project directly benefits 134 students (114 girls and 20 boys) currently studying in the college.
