An adult school in India -- the first of its kind -- has opened for transgender students.
In the Indian city of Kochi, near the southern tip of the nation on the coast of the Indian Ocean, Sahaj International will take in trans adults who dropped out of school.
It's expected to have 10 students, ages 25-50, who will be taught by volunteer teachers and social workers.
The school aims at making transgenders eligible for taking decent jobs and living a dignified life.
The school had a difficult time finding a location. According to the Indian Times, the school organizers were rejected by most building owners.
Transgender discrimination is a major issue in India. The country was among six countries that abstained from voting at the U.N. Human Rights Council for appointing an independent investigator to protect LGBTQ people worldwide.
There have been some advancements for India's trans community. In 2014, India's Supreme Court recognized trans people as a "third gender" with equal rights under the law.
