Government School Construction as part of rehabilitation due to floods
Aviratha constructed a Government lower primary school in Shalinganoor village of Gangavathi taluk in Koppala district. This venture was part of Aviratha’s North Karnataka Floor relief and Rehabilitation initiative, 2009-10. Shalinganoor , an interior village on banks of Tungabhadra river was submerged in floods of 2009, completely destructing school and other public infrastructure. Shalinganoor village was later shifted, where Aviratha built a new school for the government – modeled on a new eco-friendly design.
