Photo of the day: mothers in Chawama suffering

Someome informed me of it but last night i saw it for my self. In chawama Mothers & Grandmothers laying in a ditch so they can get forms for their kids to get into grade 1. I took this at 21hrs. Some had been there since 12hrs. Due to shortage of Government Schools.
Even laying down here doesnt guarantee a spot. The demand is that a child be 7 years old to enter grade one. Some ladies said their children get rejected cause they look smaller. One lady says her child is now 9 and hopes now he will be accepted.
They cant afford private schools even at a fee of 150 a month.
They gave me permission to take pictures and be interviewed because they feel they’ve had enough and hope recognition to the situation will bring help.
Ill be posting the video next.
