Schoolchildren in Nepal wear school uniforms. Besides the formal uniforms, there are the housedresses. No dresses, but an informal version of a school uniform. Often it is a tracksuit and T-shirt.
The availability of a housedress gives the kids a choice in what to wear to school. So there is less to wash and less wear and tear. But the important thing is that the kids love to be able to have the option of wearing their housedresses. They will totally fit in, and that is something we want for them.
