Unlike the rest of the world, the region of South Asia has a huge population of children below the age of 15. It is estimated in India alone that close to 40% of the 1.4 billion people are children under the age of 16. The urban centers of the region have a good number of schools for children. However, the number of schools in the rural, tribal and other remote parts of the region are meager in number. One could travel for days before they come across an educational institution of any kind. REAP currently runs two schools – one in the remote regions of Nagaland and the other in the remote part of Manipur. Both these institutions are situated in the north-eastern region of India that is sandwiched between Bangladesh to the west and Myanmar to the East.
