Although pupils studied in heavily cold class rooms in winter season, since there was no central heating system and joineries were deteriorated in the both school buildings. Total number of direct project beneficiaries is 473 pupils and 46 teachers and non-teaching stuffs of the Primary School. The school buildings will be used by some local communities, therefore, this project would contribute indirectly to around 4,000 people living in the Municipality.
