TCF/ GIKI Alumni Campus
It would cost USD 171,000 to build a primary school unit for the 2017-18 cycle. Another USD 76,000 will be required for three years' operational support from 2018-21 once school starts its operations in April 2018. Therefore, the total cost for the TCF Primary School: GIKI Alumni Campus is USD 247,000.
The average cost for constructing and fully equipping a single-unit TCF Primary School for the 2017-18 build cycle is USD 171,000. The break-up of the build cost is as follows:
USD 76,000 will be required for three years' operational support from 2018-21 once school starts its operations in April 2018. Operational costs for a TCF school include the cost of teacher salaries and training, text books and uniforms, school utilities and management expenses of the school. Given the limited ability to pay school fees in the communities where TCF operates, most of these operational costs have to be subsidized by TCF.
Project planning begins after TCF receives confirmation of a build commitment and the mobilization advance from GIKI Alumni. A standard TCF School is estimated to take 12 - 14 months to be completed with quarterly updates provided to GIKI Alumni during construction of the school and ongoing annual reports outlining school operations once the school is constructed.
