Students

As of July of 2013, there are twenty-one students (11 girls and 10 boys) currently attending the GLC, and admissions are open for another 9 students to enroll. The table shows the breakdown in ages. Home life for most of the students is varied – some of the fathers work manual labor or intensive jobs, whenever they’re available, and some spend their days drinking and playing cards. Before joining the GLC, some of the mothers used to work in cleaning and cooking jobs, especially those that are divorced or widowed, but most were housewives, delegated with cooking and cleaning duties at home. A few of the parents have skills in tailoring, mechanics, and driving but cannot easily find steady work. Some children are from single parent families. Housing is very basic. Often there are one or two rooms to house an entire family of six to eight people, frequently including grandparents as well as the parents and children. The children have few or no toys or sports game equipment at their home, so playing is done out on the streets with whatever toys they can find out and about.
