Katha Lisu Schools

Katha Lisu School Students and teachers at Shidi.

Description from their site:

The Katha-Lisu Schools in tribal Arunachal Pradesh are at Gandhigram, 38 mile settlement (Ngwazakha), Hazulu village, Sidikhu village. In the year 2009-2010, the five schools enrolled a total of 245 students, 3-6 years old. Started in 2005, these are part of a community-based programme that help wildlife conservation by reducing hunting pressures on Namdapha National Park. Managed by the local church and Lisu elders from communities that live in remote villages with poor access to health care, education, and employment opportunities. The schools are 136-157 km on foot from the nearest town.


They do good job. I really wish they will upgrade to matriculation and provide good teacher training in the village.
