“Thanks to Support My School, I can visit the library and read books. I can also play carom board and badminton with my friends. The instructors have the resources to teach us and make concepts understandable. I have made many new friends in my school that came here because of the new facilities. My family is very pleased with my new school. I can proudly say that my school is the best and this is only because of Support My School. I love my school.”
