involving community

The Lambani community is one of the poorest communities in the region and is engaged in agricultural labour. Since agriculture work is seasonal, they have to migrate to find work. Most of them migrate to work in the sugarcane fields in the neighbouring district where harvesting usually starts in October and continues for about five months. Families take children along due to which children are out of school for almost half the year and face difficult challenges in learning.

Education has 3 pillars—students, teachers & community. If we do not connect the community to education, then we cannot ensure all-round development of students.
