|Grand Circle Foundation has funded a new classroom at the Laxmi School.||
"It was eye-opening to see how the government schools function in small towns, with many children not starting school until 8 or 9 and many students leaving before finishing lower secondary school…. We support the work you are doing with schools throughout the world."

Laxmi Primary School
Partner since: 2009
Total donated: $15,624
We've been supporting the community of Tomejhong since early 2009, and we're looking forward to having a lasting impact on the lives of the 30 students who attend the Laxmi School. So far we've funded a new classroom and improved the lavatory facilities. In 2010, a group of Grand Circle associates raised $6500 to fund repairs to the fence and the leaking roof, the salary for an English teacher, repairs to the toilet and water tank, and English-language textbooks.
School in session:
Early January through early May; early July through late December
