Let’s go back to childhood for a moment and remember how painful it was to wake up early every single morning, get ready, sit in the car or take a bus and head to school. Terrible timing! We often forget how lucky we are comparing to those kids who live in developing countries. Every day their trip to school is the question of life and death, literally. If your trip to school included crossing the broken bridge and hundreds of meters emptiness under your feet…would you go ? They do..This is what these kids are ready to pay for their education. Impressive!
