Mane Village School building started in 2002 and was completed in 2005.
At the beginning, there was no road to the village and all materials had to be brought in by donkey. The plan included five classrooms, a staff room, and a library dedicated to Natalie Pyke who sent over 60 boxes of books to the school.
Mane Village School was built at the request of the villagers and is traditional in style with a flat roof, wooden floors, with the addition of solar energy and a double-glazed conservatory (Glass House). On completion the Indian Government took over the running of the school and up-graded it to Secondary level.
