So... The new school term begins in April for Government schools, and students have been issued a book list full of items costing more than 5,000 rps. For many families, this cost is completely, almost laughably, unaffordable.
With hellacious increase to living costs, there has been little-to-no increase in salaries. Most months the families in this District are unable to meet their essential needs like food, rent, and bills... so this additional cost will be a huge difficulty for them.
Only £15 will cover the cost
of a supplies pack for a child.
