The Elementary School in Chulin has 211 students. Before the start of the construction, one classroom was made up of corrugated metal. The youngest kids were using this classroom which got really warm during the day or really dusty with winds. Another two classrooms were being used in a meeting hall where it was divided by plywood, but students had to deal with materials that the community was storing for projects, as well as two classes going on at the same time. The awesome thing about this community, is that it is really organized with the construction committee, the parent teacher association and another local youth organization all coming together to help out, divide responsibilities and bring this project to reality.
Number of students: 211
