Lahagon Hostel

Their parents are working as landless labourers and illiterate, unable to support their children in their learning.

Lahogaon hostel provides a safe place for boys to study, nutritious food and the opportunity to develop personally so that they can have a degree of agency over their lives and become successful citizens.The majority of students stay with the hostel for 5 years to complete their secondary education.

Last year, the 25 residential students in Standard 10 passed the School Completion Certificate (the equivalent of GCSEs) with 80% gaining the highest grades. Passing the SCC enables the boys to continue with higher level study and access semi-skilled or skilled jobs that were not available to their parents, lifting them and their family out of poverty.
