A decrepit zilla parishad school at Jambhurde village in Murbad taluk of Maharashtra was transformed into a Happy School by RC Dombivli, RID 3142, thus benefitting over 120 students.
Club president Ulka Savla (2021–22), project chairman Dr Shirali and coordinator Sanjeev Tambe made several visits to the school for planning material supply, labour and supervising the renovation work. “We chose this school as its condition was pathetic and the village has a population of 2,000,” said past president Shankar Sathawane. A number of renovation work including setting up a main gate, repairing the roof, compound wall, building gender-segregated toilet blocks, computer room, e-learning kits and two smart TVs, library books with a bookshelf, a handwash station, water purifier and sports equipment were done in a phased manner.
During the inaugural, the then DG Dr Mayuresh Warke appreciated the club for completing the project without delay and following the guidelines of RILM, thus ushering in change in the lives of deprived students of this village. Gram panchayat sarpanch Vaishali Patil and zilla parishad education officer Shelawale expressed happiness that the school was upgraded and assured all further help.
President-elect Dr Pravin Sawant (2022–23) and CSR representative Sanjay Acharya were present at the inauguration of the school.
