Bholu 8 is located It is located in a quiet, open and semi-rural part of the Motera slum area. It has colourful katlo rope screens at the front, playful murals on the walls and a spacious fenced playground and garden at the back for the children to play in.
It is a great example of TAP’s volunteers implementing simple green architecture, with a simple design that incorporates lots of colour, an outdoor stage and an imaginative playground made from tires. Other features include a scrap metal fence and salvaged terrazzo tiling on the floor. The walls were constructed in donated fly ash bricks and the doors, windows and storage cupboards were sourced from a nearby market and painted yellow to match the teachers’ new sari uniforms.
