However, only five school sites have sturdy classrooms, in which Nam Un site with 30 children had the most dilapidated classrooms. When it rains, the mud and rain would get inside and the classrooms looked even more fragile. It couldn't keep out the winds during the winter so teachers and children had to find ways to keep warm first.
