What We Do

 

SOSMC was founded to raise funding to renovate the Opportunity School buildings in Chennai, India. SOSMC is located in the heart of Dallas, Texas, and is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) charity registered in the United States. The Opportunity School needs renovation due to damage from flooding through the years.    

The school and dormitory is made up of a group of 3 buildings, built between 1969 and 1995. Engineers determined that the buildings were structurally sound and could be lifted 5 feet to reduce exposure from flooding. We started with the newest building, and the renovation included steelwork, brickwork, electrical, plumbing, plastering, painting, woodwork, aluminum partitions, and installing a drainage ditch.  The renovation work for Building 1995 was completed in June 2020!                                               

                                                                                      

 

 

 

             

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We have raised funding for the 2nd and 3rd building. Due to the government restrictions on receiving foreign funds, SOSMC is holding the funds in the United States. Meanwhile, the Opportunity school is again making repairs to these 2 buildings to get through the monsoon rains.

 WE NEED YOUR HELP!
