The school houses 50 children who have either been rescued from child labor or abandoned by agricultural laborers and migrant workers who have left the area in search of jobs. The school also serves another 50 poor children from villages within a 3-5 KM radius. The school is surviving on meagre aid from the State, barely enough to cover the cost of food, clothing and basic necessities of the children it houses.
The Domino Effect
The local community and Rotary Club, Mysore, had been aggressively pursuing the rebuilding efforts and a few new classrooms had already been built.
