Overcoming the Monsoon


Throughout the monsoon school carries on as normal. Each day children queue for the bus or walk to school in torrential rain. Imagine for a moment being a child and not having a rain coat. You would arrive at school soaking wet and sit in your wet uniform till home time. When you reach home it’s unlikely Mum could get your uniform dry for the next day. You can’t attend school in anything but your uniform so you may well keep missing school and fall behind. You would probably feel embarrassed and might not want to go to school at all. Most likely you would get sick from the constant damp and miss more school.

The provision of a £5 raincoat which will last two years can change all of this. It’s a small thing but it can make all the difference!
