The mixed community comprising of Janajati and Dalit families who are ardent followers of Hinduism with a total population of about 3,500. Although road connectivity with the nearby city is smooth and the transport facility is adequate however the cell phone network is relatively poor.
The community members are mostly dependent on agriculture for their livelihood, and others migrate to a foreign land for remittance. In the majority of cases, both the mother and the father from each family have migrated abroad for better job opportunities leaving their children either to stay with their grandparents or elder siblings.
Considering the perspective of a larger mass of people in the community and the students, they do not seem to give much priority or importance to education. They still believe that after SEE, most of them will either get a work visa or engage in jobs like becoming a driver, a bus conductor, or migrate to a foreign land for low paying jobs.
The school is struggling to establish its own labs and library due to a lack of funds. The school does not have enough rooms for students because of which classes for grade 6 and 7 are taken in the old buildings which have been partially damaged by the 2015 earthquake.
