10 Amazing Journeys Children Make To Get To School
Filipino youngsters trying to reach an elementary school in the Rizal Province have to cross a large river in order to reach the other side. As there is no bridge or boats to take them across, they have to use inflatable tire tubes to navigate the fast flowing waters. To make matters worse, the journey also includes an hour long walk over rough terrain.
It’s just as difficult to reach the Indonesian school in the center of Cilangkap Village, with children wishing to get to the school having to get down a long and winding river. Those who live far enough away from the facility have to utilize a makeshift bamboo raft that is only wide enough to have people standing on it in single file.
