Children not getting the basic facilities they are entitled to. 49 students study in one class with one teacher.
Bharatiben Patel, the 5th class teacher, puts on a smile to face the diabolical situation, “I used to face a problem before but now I am used to it, because I accept it and me and the children work well together.”
Even meal times are without its troubles. Goats come and eat the children’s midday meals due to a broken school gate and damaged wall.
Ramila, 6th Class Student tells our Correspondent, “Goats eat the food on our plates.”
With no clean water to drink student’s resort to bringing their own water bottles. A water tank that was installed previously was so dangerous that it was removed.
