Kids and Teenagers Educational facilities is a project aiming to improve and maintain facilities provided to students, so that they can use every opportunity to develop full potential. Educational facilities include buildings, fixtures, and equipment necessary for the effective and efficient operation of the program of public education, classrooms, libraries, rooms and space for physical education, space for fine arts, restrooms, cafeterias, landscaping and paving, and similar items.


It has been recorded that, Children and Teenagers are spending more time in schools than at home. Therefore, physical environment of educational facilities

is one of the key factors in the overall health, safety and security for children, staff, and visitors.
