Pardhiapally Village, Loisingha Block, Bolangir, Odisha | Shankar

Imagine being constantly scared that the roof of your school is going to fall on your head. 40 students at this primary school located near the blasting site for a dam face this fear on a daily basis.

The construction of the Lower Suktel Dam in Odisha has been contentious since it began in April 2013, Correspondent Shankar is documenting the different ways in which lives are being affected by this dam, which most locals don't want.

The school's administration has already lodged several complaints; the State Human Rights Commission has also visited the school. Nothing has changed, now we need your support to put pressure on authorities to make this school safe.

Call / text the Block Education Officer, +91 9438415804 and ask him to ensure that the students have a safe school to study in.
