Read the text and answer the question no.1 and 2.
River gypsies in Bangladesh are having various problems. First, Bangladesh is getting urbanized very rapidly. Gypsy people are losing their customers in urban population. Hence, their income is threatened. Secondly, 24,000 kilometers of previous waterways has shrunk into only 6,000 kilometers in the country in dry seasons.
Scientists belive that Bangladesh will be worst affected by global climate change. The unpredictable rain and drying out of rivers have made boat movement heavily restricted. Thirdly, many river gypsies are changing their lifestyle in the context of changed reality. they are thinking of living permanently on land. The authority feels that river gypsies need help to survive in the mainstream population. Therefore, the government is offering voting rights, permanent housing and bank- loan facilities. However, changes do not come overnight.
Traditionally, river gypsies are used to water life. They have inherited from their forefathers necessary life skills to survive in waters. They have no education and tanning to adapt to mainstream modern society. So, the authority feels the need to bring them formal education network. But they have no permanent living place. Gypsy children are born brought up on roaming boats. Therefore, they cannot go to conventional schools. And hence, mobile boats schools are coming up for gypsy children. Some voluntary organizations are running special schools on boats to educate river gypsy children in some areas.
