It hasn't been that long that students are made aware of the importance of education. Students are thus less likely to believe in education and have a vision for their future. Most of the student's families rely on remittance to run their household expenses.
After placement of TFN Fellows, the number of enthusiastic and active students has certainly increased which might change the future of the place. This school currently has 4 buildings which serve the current needs of the school including one hall and a total of 15 rooms including an office and a library. The school has one ground at the center surrounded by a wall. Meanwhile, the urgent need to renovate toilets and water facilities is the key concern to be resolved.
