The School comprises:
- 52 Students (Kindergarten to 6th grade). There used to be over 140 students back in 1997, but later dropped down due to enforcement of the reserved forests nearby (where homesteaders were force out from the area).
- 4 Teachers
- A Lunch supplement program, with their fish pond and vegetable farm
- Computer desks and chairs - 8 sets
- Foods to supplement their insufficient lunch program. These could be rice, instant noodles, dried food or money. Please note that one of the motives for the children to attend school is that they have someting to eat for lunch.They did not expect too much in the quality of education provided.

The last few KM was over unpaved roads - The dust cloud was from the vehicle in front.
