I spoke with the school principle and he will be helping me keep track of the kids so that will be helpful. He is also quite willing to accept more applications from us when registration opens for next school year. The children appeared very happy to attend school and I hope they will learn as much as they can. Our goal is just to make sure they go to school everyday and not skip classes.
It was so adorable to see the children in their school uniforms. Since they live in the streets, they quickly take their clean school uniform off when the get home and put on their dirty clothes. I am quite sure the children are not doing their homework when they are at home, but they seem to carry heavy book bags, so hopefully, they are learning. The problem is the children don't really have a suitable place in the streets to do their homework. But there was evidence some learning has occurred because little Rupa Paswan was speaking a little bit of English to me when she translated her mother's request that I stay to have some food with them.
