Basketball Court for Parijat Academy

The school's main courtyard, where hundreds of students assemble every morning and afternoon, is dirt and needs to be paved. An even concrete surface would allow students to play basketball with the installation of a hoop at the south end. Basketball is, of course, an excellent way for both boys and girls to get exercise and to have fun while learning about leadership and teamwork. Currently, the school's only "sports facilities" are disused rice paddies, so a simple basketball court would make a big difference. In addition, paving the courtyard would make the school more professional, eliminating dust kicked up by the students in the dry seasons and mud during monsoons.

Every high school in the United States has a basketball court. Help build one here at Parijat Academy!
