Bata Atha Grade School

  In 2005, AWB Oregon assembled a team of volunteers to design and construct a grade school in Bata Atha, Sri Lanka. They were fortunate to arrive in Sri Lanka with adequate funding and connections to high-level government officials who facilitated site selection. The team leveraged local contributions of labor and cement for the reinforced concrete and masonry building. They worked with a well-known Sri Lankan architect and village leaders to develop the design and start the construction process.
