KESST: Report for 2020-21

The year 2020-21 started under the grim shadow of Covid-19,
 lock-downs and curfews, rampaging infection, suspension of educational classes,
 deaths and great uncertainty. By August 2020, life began limping back

 who had to juggle with unemployment, reduction in incomes
 and keeping the children in good spirits.
