Tribal Students Let Down by Administration

Torakel Village, Khunti District, Jharkhand | Amita Tuti

For many in the Naxal afflicted areas of Khunti District Jharkhand, education carries a hope that the next generation will live better lives. In a Primary School in the district, these hopes come quickly crashing down as studies get affected by the lack of infrastructure. There are no toilets, not enough classrooms and not even a lightening conductor, making the school dangerous on stormy days.
For Community Correspondent Amita, who is a champion of education, this is a disturbing trend she finds among many schools. With this video she hopes to change one school and many lives.

Call to Action: Please call the District Education Commissioner of Khunti and ask her to ensure that all necessary infrastructure is made available in this office.
