Distribution of Educational Materials

This year's project activities kicked off in April. As previously reported, this includes the distribution of books, uniforms and educational materials to the thousand poorest children.

With 65% of the population living on less than a £1 a day, something as simple as these school basics can be out of the reach of so many children. Further to this, we have seen many times how Dalit children are singled out for ridicule and bullying by others because of their older shabbier clothes. 

By staying in school these children have a real opportunity to escape child labour and the cycle of poverty which has bound their families for generations. 

I am therefore very pleased to be able to share with you some pictures of the distribution of educational resources to the children identified as the poorest this year. The survey conducted by the project team identified 1009 children this year who should recieve support in this way. 

I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.
