Just two months after the approval of the BERFRED grant on 18th February, construction of the hostel is almost complete. The roof is on, outside walls have been plastered and the inner decorative board ceiling has been put in place. As shown here, wiring for electric lighting is in progress.  All this has been done with the engagement of students in the work.
At the same time a rainwater collection system, involving roof guttering , piping and a huge underground tank, has been completed, mainly funded from savings on building construction projects. This will do a lot towards making the IoT self-sufficient in water which is scarce in the area. It also set an example for people in the area to follow, showing how they can use their own labour as the main ingredient in water tank construction.
