************************************************************************************

About fifty children have dropped out from school because they live in a remote hill area and had to walk four to six hours every day to reach the school. They are all from economically backward classes. Rachana recently started a 2-room hostel for 25 of them with the help of a local social worker. It is only a temporary arrangement, as they don't have sufficient funds. They would like to rent a bigger place so that they can accommodate all the children and gradually move them to mainstream education.
