Project initiation

Baltistan Fondazoa approved a proposal to develop a unique architectural building in Hushe Valley with the aim to keep alive traditional architecture. They proposed importance of education in the valley and set aim as priority to promote education of the valley. Shamshair Ali and Basharat Ali forwarded time to time reports to BF. They funded and FIFBM members were about to start project implementation. Unfortunately, staff variation occurred in Government high officials. The project execution remained pending because of not issuance the NOC (No Objection Certificate) from government to start work. These days were about June 2010. The foundation members put their ever best time to get the NOC from government. Their efforts remained away till May 2011. Finally, government issued NOC and the project executed in June 2011. Akhond Ibrahim took keen interest in its construction. He even worked as a carpenter and he did his level best experiences for this construction. His experiences were highly implemented to construct this center in a unique architecture as he has good idea about cultural and traditional designing.

Everything was going good. The construction was in process with its best time. The people were hoping to be train soon in this center. The students were gazing and were curious to join computer and internet classes. The teachers were so enthusiastic to get valuable trainings on their door step. The foundation members were happy and were quiet satisfied with ongoing construction.

Unfortunately, the hopes, wishes, curiosities, enthusiasms and commitments got a long and unexpected vacuity. The sponsoring side got a huge economical crisis and management changes as well. This circumstance caused to delay this construction after one month of its execution, July 2011 to July 2014. The long vacuum creates lots of disturbance for managing resources. The constructed parts were defecting by weather and gradually physical structure was getting bad shape. The woods were fitted in open air and rains put lots of bad effect on those woods. The same way Talis affected by flood and their budget was adjusted to save the center resources such as its physical structure. BF permitted FIFBM to adjust Talis flood effecters pending budget for TTC. The FIFBM members thankfully starts the project execution in August 2014 with a good enthusiasm and passionately. The members planned to do this task with following aspects.

The mentioned and planed Resource Management executed in a very fast and passionate manner.
