Evidence of Program's Success

The ultimate success indicator for this project will be the presence of students at the school, using all four new classrooms that are in turn fully equipped to provide students with quality education. However, the below intermediate indicators will be used to measure the progress being made toward the achievement of the overall goal of the project:
1. An agreement signed between the UOC and building engineer;
2. Securing a building permit;
3. Forming a PMC and PTA to serve the school;
4. Construction of the four classrooms;
5. Construction of the well and install the rainwater harvesting system;
6. Construction of two sets of toilet/latrine blocks, including wash areas;
7. Procuring the necessary furniture/desks and tables for classrooms and staff office; and
8. Wiring classrooms for electricity.
