VRT-77 chairman Ameet Mirpuri said that the ground plus one storeyed building would have facilities to educate 400 under-privileged students of the school.

Vizag Round Table-77 has constructed a new building for the benefit of the students of Theosophical Society’s Vasantha Bala Vidyalaya (VBV) High School near Gurudwara.

The new building will be inaugurated by Minister for Infrastructure and Investments Ganta Srinivasa Rao on Saturday.

Giving details to the media on Thursday, VRT-77 chairman Ameet Mirpuri said that the ground plus one storeyed building would have facilities to educate 400 under-privileged students of the school. It was completed at a cost of Rs.40 lakhs.

The green building has been designed to provide optimum sunlight and fresh air to the students.

This was the fourth school building in the district constructed by VRT-77 since its establishment in 1983 under Round Table India (RTI) project of ‘freedom through education’.

There were four Round Tables in Visakhapatnam and together they had constructed 14 school buildings.

The Vasantha Bala Vidyalaya school building was constructed in a record four months time with Rs.10 lakhs given by the P & G Shiksha Foundation and the rest raised from donations from the public and contributions of the members.

Flyash bricks and flyash-based cement was used in the construction of the building to increase the durability of the building in the long run.

He said that Round Table India has so far built 4,000 classrooms at over 1,300 schools all over the country at a cost of over Rs.100 crores.

Round Table India provides a wide range of social and community service-related project through the fellowship of its members.

Apart from construction, the maintenance of the buildings would also be taken up by the Round Table India and the recurring needs of books and uniforms of underprivileged children would also be met as and when required.
