Not just school, an appreciation for learning

What a surprise. When the teachers visited the Bengali refugee community that collects and sorts garbage, they found lower-kindergartener Kumkum reading a book! When asked where she got it from, Kukum explained how she found it in the garbage she was collecting with her mom. Instead of putting it in with the other paper, Kumkum cleaned it off and put it safely in her bag.

This seemingly small act, done by a small child, shows how deep the changes are in the community. And the book she found looks like it’s in great condition!

Kumkum's book
Before coming to school, most kids didn’t realize the value of books.
