How?

How can you expect your student come to school in clean uniform when they can’t even afford to buy soap, shampoo or any of these basic things?

How can you expect your student to listen to you attentively when they also think about their brothers/ sisters who do not eat at home?

How can you expect your student to come to school with homework when their parents didn’t even attend school?

How can you expect your student to behave accordingly when at home they are unsafe?

How can you expect your student to use soft voice when they are used to shouting and hearing vulgar words?

How can you expect your student to wear proper uniform when they would rather buy food than school uniform?

Reality sucks. We can’t just teach them the information you can find in the books. We need to teach them how to dream. We need to teach them how it’s like to have a better life. We need to teach them how to be independent and free of worries. We need to teach them how to aim high and set goals.
