Total of 5 participant participated in the research. Information were gathered from the participant through semi-structured interviews Semi-structured interviews were particularly suited to the purpose of the phenomenological case study as a researcher has the liberty of going into detail in order to dig out information about the different aspects of a phenomenon. Participants were identified through snow balling sampling technique and through informed consent interviews sessions were conducted with all the five participant of the research. After data were analyzed different themes surfaced to the front.The participants of the data have gone more are less under the similar experiences. It was found that within schools participants faced sever discrimination and bullying from fellow students while teachers were also found involved in discriminative behavior against transgender. Similarly parental behavior and their non-supportive behavior were also responsible for discontinuation of their schooling. Moreover, they also faced sever social discrimination. Furthermore sexual exploitation has also been faced by a participant during a study in a government school from an elder student fellow. In the face of such unfriendly environment for a transgender person to continue schooling as evident from the data is almost impossible.
