These children essentially need transport facilities from their home to school and back. Bokaro Steel Plant has provided two rental trekkers for this purpose. All poor students of Asha-Lata are provided with free transport from their home to School and back in all working days and special programs.

The present transport facility is falling short of the requirement and needs to be augmented so that more members of challenged children can join the school.
