LIGHT in LIFE decided to help the children of such families to access school education by upgrading of the existing school facilities and infrastructure in the tribal areas of SOMONPARA, Meghalaya. The construction of the school building is looked after by Fransalien Agency for social care and Education in India (FAsCE) is a non-profit, non-governmental, secular, voluntary, registered organisation. They promote the integrated development of individuals and communities. FAsCE India, the official social development agency of the MSFS (Missionary of St. Francis de Sales) of the North Eastern Province, is responsible for the educational and social development in that region. Their self-help groups educate women, men and the youth on the importance of education, health and hygiene thus raising awareness. The total cost of the construction of the school building will be equally borne by FAsCE and LIGHT in LIFE.
On 5th January 2017, the completed school building was officially inaugurated and opened by The Most Rev H.E. Andrew R. Marak the Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Tura, Meghalaya, in the presence of LIGHT in LIFE President Mr Shaji Adathala and LIGHT in LIFE patron and advisor Mr Braddock.
