Inflation

It is difficult to calculate the rate of inflation because despite government controls on the price of basic foods inflation hits the poorest hardest. We estimate that our costs increase by 10 - 15% per year.

 

Huge Social Impact

Most of our teachers are unmarried girls who would not normally be allowed out of the house without a male relative.

By paying them
