Three children, who were doing time with their mothers at District Prison, Khotang, received educational materials in the district today.
Mausam Rai, 5; Resham Rai, 4; and one-and-half-year old Urmila Bishwokarma were provided with materials by Diktel Saving and Credit Cooperative, Lalupate Multi-purpose Cooperative and Sakriya Saving and Credit Cooperative. The cooperatives provided the children with bags, copies, pencils, track suits, among others.
The cooperatives said they provided the children with the materials as they were deprived of education. Similarly, the cooperatives provided Tasbira Rai and Bimala Subedi, two volunteer teachers at the prison, with incentives. The children were staying in the prison with their time-serving mothers.
