The Yarra Foundation was involved to provide transportation facilities for school students in “Tangeh Mansoori” to facilitate their access to school. This school is a rural area located between the two western Iranian cities of Ilam and Kermanshah.
Last year ‘Tangeh Mansouri’ school principle recognized that for the new academic year, twelve of the school students who all are originally residing in remote villages haven’t enrolled to commence high school and their families don’t have any tendency to send them to school for the new academic year.
Upon investigation, he found out that the reason behind their non-attendance is their family poor financial capacity as their parents cannot afford the transportation costs to send them to school which is located reasonably far from their residential villages.
Yarra Foundation raised the transportation funds for these students and helped them to utilize a secure access to school for a whole year.
