The children that live in and around Num had almost no access to education. You had to walk an entire day to reach the nearest quality school. In 2013, Arun Valley English School's construction began. Due to the high quality of education and the provision of proper infrastucture, more and more students from the region have joined the school. In fact, a lot of families moved to Num to live closer to the school. Cunina also had built three more extra classrooms.
The village of Num was very difficult to reach when our Founder arrived there for the first time in 2012. Travelling from Khandbari to Num almost took you a day. The infrastructure was extremely poor and the students did not have any uniforms. These shabby classrooms have now been replaced with a school made out of stone. It consists of thirteen classrooms with new school furniture. All the children wear a school uniform now . At the end of 2016, a road was built between Sekha and Num so you are now also able to get there by jeep.
On 10th April 2019, Cunina started building a secondary school on the same property. These way Cunina children can complete their education in the same school.
