In order to make Aladdin feel motivated (and not ruin our friendship) I asked him how much
₹5.000.07 €
23
he thought was a fair value and he said 150rupees per hour. It's a very good price.

This means that to highly improve the quality of life of one person for one year costs a mere €0,33
39
For this tiny amount, you can provide one person with a year of:
40
- A roof
41
Protection from the rain, a place to live under, a place for the children to sleep safely.
42
Reduction in the probability of contracting infectious diseases such as TB from living in crowded quarters.
43
The obvious additional comfort and safety of having your own space.
44
- A mosquito net
45
The comfort of being able to sleep without being bothered by insects.
46
Protection from insect related diseases such as malaria.
47
- An elementary book.
48
Perhaps the difference between getting into a government shool or not.
49
The incalculable value that basic maths and language can have on a life.
