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 the renovation due to damage from flooding throughout 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 building and work will begin after the pandemic. Now, all we need is to raise funds to lift and renovate the 3rd and oldest building.
To achieve this objective...........
WE NEED YOUR HELP!
