We are incredibly fortunate to have Nithya on board to help with the SFF Sacred Trust project. Nithya is originally from India, pursuing her Masters of Architecture at the University of Portland, in Oregon, USA . She has lived in India for 24 yrs and worked as an architect for two years. She contacted us last year with the hopes of conducting her final year thesis project on an elementary school in India, due to her close knit ties and emotional connection to the country and its people. We graciously accepted.
On her last visit to Mathigiri, Hosur, she took several photos of the surrounding village for us to share with you. If you are interested in helping with this project in any way, we welcome you to connect with us here.
You will see from the photos the level of poverty in the area, and the poor condition of the current classroom. The need is very real and we are excited as we continue to work on this project and get planning and construction underway.
