Did you know that approximately 12 Million kids do not go to school in India (Unesco, 2014)? Even though there are government schools, the reasons behind school dropouts are cruel.
We spent a week in Amader Eskul school run by Finnish voluntary organization Canelipuu Ry in West Bengal, India and had a very eye-opening interview with Mrityunjay “Matun” Mondal, the coordinator of the school. Matun tells us why so many kids are not going to school in India and the surprising way how this school is preventing the dropouts. Matun also shares his dream for the future and what brings him happiness.
