This project aims to improve studying environment of 60 students with disabilities learning at Al-Arsath School in Sammauthurai DS Division. The special education unit at the school is the biggest unit in the area and students from neighboring divisions are also learning. However, the building and facilities they use are very old as well as not particularly designed for disabled children, which are making their studying environment difficult.
