Our ministry partner in Eluru, India (ICM) looks after 30 government-aided primary schools and 2 secondary schools. Rural village children are educated from Grade 1 (6 years old) onwards.
Many of these children face 2 main problems:
1. Inadequate diet
2. Poor educational facilities
Currently, the children only receive milk at lunch time through a government grant. Also, ICM schools were built over 70 years ago and do not receive any government aid to rebuild or renovate.
