Geres contributes to the thermal renovation of a school for the blind Students in Tajikistan
80 kids, 80 smiles. Thanks to funds raised by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) Foundation and the NGO Peshraft, work was undertaken to insulate the external walls, replace the ceiling and replace the electrical installations.
In winter, students and teachers will be able to benefit from warm classes while keeping the school’s heating and electricity bill under control and benefitting from institutions’ rates instead of expensive industrial rates. In summer, the roof overhang will prevent the rooms from over-heating while providing much needed shade to the students.
Each of six classrooms now has an energy-efficient electric heater.
A small inauguration ceremony was organized on the 3rd of March 2020, in the presence of the kids, the families, the school’s staff, and representatives of the three organisations, with all those who “gave a hand” in this project!
