Pharol is the newer village area among terraced fields on the east bank of the stream. The students from the Govt. Middle School arrived in the morning to carry the furniture, books and toys to their school. We climbed through narrow lanes full of twists and turns to reach the school.
At the school, the headmaster received the FoL team and asked us to inaugurate the new school block which also had a freshly painted room ready to become a new reading room. We cut the green ribbon and were offered dry apricots. After an introduction to Avalokitesvara Trust’s vision, the children quickly set up the reading room.
