Maya intends to cover each and every construction site. However, initially, we are concentrating at larger sites with a minimum of 20 children under the age of 12. School timings, 4 hours per day, are fixed after considering the working hours, the distance between the construction site and residential shed etc. Details of the kids such as name, age, address etc, are notified in the register. The school is operated by an experienced teacher and a helper, identified from the nearby areas. The teachers serving with Sarva Siksha Abhiyan are selected to utilize their expertise in most effective way. Training to teachers has been provided.
