          • INR 60k community support
          • INR 38k from surplus for 1st room provided by Asha-Austin
      • Additional, 3 lacs needed for the new room
      • No funding partner has come in support of the construction of this new room, yet.
  • Funds utilization report for Apr 2017 to Sept 2017 -
      • Surplus from 2016-17: INR 2.62 lacs for Program, INR -68k for Room
      • Approved budget of INR 12.17 lacs, Disbursement of INR 10.17 lacs for 2017-18
      • INR 4.4 lacs used in the first half of the year, teacher salaries for June 2017 hasn't been paid
      • Balance as per budget to be used in second half of the year: INR 7.5 lacs, which is unlikely
      • INR 3.38 surplus from first -half, disbursement of INR 4.1 lacs sufficient for program, while approval of budget is for INR 5.1 lacs
          • If we were to disburse, INR 4.1 lacs for program, INR 1 lac for room now (at the level of approved budget), construction can start immediately
          • If the surplus from 2017-18 be around INR 2 lacs, it can be repurposed to take care of the balance construction cost of the new room with chapter approval (March 2018 timeframe)
          • What happens if there is indeed NO surplus?
  • Q & A from Annual review
  • Questions:
