India – West Bengal: School children at Mogulkata Tea Estate, in the Dooars region. Pupils are transported in trailers used to carry tea leaves rather than in proper buses and the level of education is generally low. Although companies are supposed to provide schooling for the workers' children, schools are often managed by the government, under special schemes reserved for low-income communities.
