Children Troubled by Water Logging in School

“Can you do something for us? There is always water collected here and the germs are spreading,” asks a young student at the Kasturba Gandhi Hostel, Devanandpur, Uttar Pradesh.

Community Correspondent Shabanam reports from the hostel where students are being put in serious danger because of water logging on the school grounds.

The young girls are eager to play in their school ground and cannot because it is swamped with water. They point out a long stretch where mosquitos have made a breeding ground. The girls have also gotten a number of skin allergies because of the water logging.

The defiant school in charge says that they are waiting for an approval from higher authorities to get the work fixed. That however may be too long a wait for these girls.

Call to Action: Please call the Block Education Officer on 9453004187 and ask him have the water tank fixed immediately so that the girls are out of danger.
