ESAF’s Lahanti Community Schools are transforming the primary education scenario among the tribal community of Jharkhand’s Dumka. Unlike other schools, community schools are established within the tribal communities. The schools function on a special syllabus designed for the tribal community while incorporating technology-based learning methods. They are also trained to nurture their creative and artistic skills. Around 1,000 students are enrolled in the schools.

Here are 2 testimonials from students of Lahanti Community Schools.

1. Manisha Murmu
My name is Manisha Murmu. I am a student of Lahanti Community School at Bokuwa village. I am six years old and I started my studies in LCS in 2017. My parents are daily wage labourers and they are happy to send me to school every day. I walk to school regularly and I don’t want to miss any class. LCS has helped to develop my talents. I received several opportunities for public speaking and singing. It has helped me gain confidence and motivated me to study more.”

2. Churka Kisku
My name is Churka Kisku. I am a class V student of Lahanti Community school situated at Basko village in Jharkhand. My father passed away two years back and I’m staying with my mother and sibling. I came to know about the school in the awareness programme conducted by LCS in the nearby village. I was eager to join LCS. Earlier, I had to feed the cattle and collect woods. After joining the school, I make sure I attend the classes regularly and work hard at my studies. My family is also really happy that I’m able to attend classes.”
