Build a new dining hall and expand the kitchen

Part of the new high school requirement

As described in prior projects, opening the first high school in Ayalagaya ward requires substantial construction being done in phases over several years. In 2020/21 we built hostels to accommodate high school students, remodeled 11 existing classrooms and built 3 additional ones, built teachers’ bathrooms, installed electricity in the teachers’ houses, installed a centralized power house, and created a new sanitation system. In 2021/22 we will build physics and biology labs and a dining hall. In 2022/23 we will complete the high school construction projects with construction of a computer lab, remodeling of another 4 existing classrooms, and construction of a few additional ones.

This project satisfies the requirement that all high schools must have a dining hall. High school students live and take their meals on campus. The hostels will accommodate 256 students. In addition, the kitchen and dining hall must accommodate both high school (we estimate ~260) and secondary students, ~720, as the high school and secondary school share the same campus. The dining hall can also serve school or community special occasions requiring large indoor assemblies.

The dining hall specifications will accommodate 800 people concurrently. Additionally, the existing kitchen is being updated and expanded to provide new stoves and gain secure storage space for food supplies. The kitchen will be connected to the dining hall through a large, covered serving area.
