The space will also be a mentorship center to inspire the girls and encourage them to stay in school. This project will directly benefit 350 school girls. Additionally, over 100 boys in the community will have access to the library component to support their literacy skills.

The building phase for this project started from window level till completion. Currently, it is completely roofed and completely plastered. Three of the rooms are also completely cement floored, painted, and finished. What is currently remaining is the completion of the library hall and work of cementing the floor is currently in progress.
