Searing heat and poor facilities

An Alif Ailaan Contributor

Noor Hassan lives in Chak No 129 DB, Bahawalpur. He runs a small “Karyana (provision) Store” in the village. He says: “The only government school of our village has no building, no water etc.”

One community member has given his old house where the classes are held. The condition of this house (school) is such that the walls are made of mud and the roof is of hay and straw. Children can’t sit in the room when it rains.

“The temperature in our area exceeds 42 C. How can our children learn without a proper building? ” Noor Hassan asks.

Our school has been running for the last 20 years. No official has ever came to look at conditions here, neither has any building been approved. Only two washrooms were made. “You think our children can’t learn? They can. Tell me when there is no place to sit, no water to drink, and summer at 44+C how will our kids learn?” asked one community member.
