Tong-Len is now able to provide primary education to the children from the slum camps through the new school established in the Tong-Len hostels. Children are taken in the Tong-Len bus each day to join the children resident in the hostels. For the very young children there is the Tong-Len Nursery within the Chetru slum which is home to some of the poorest families evicted from Charan Khad. A simple corrugated structure has been constructed which provides a base for the work with the pre-school children. Here about 20 children receive care, a nutritious midday meal and opportunities for play and basic education. The mothers can leave their smallest children knowing they will be safe when they go to beg or to find recyclable items on the dumps.
