Education is said to be crucial to overall development of a person and society at large. In some parts of the world, Education cannot be atain easily. Most children living in undeveloped areas all over the world take the most dangerous and unthinkable routes in order to receive the education. We collected pictures of their unusual journey captured by different individuals from different countries to show the how these children value education that some of us has taken granted.
Over the past five years, The progress in connecting children to schools has slowed down, According to UNESCO. Many children from undevelop areas decide to quit school because most areas lack suitable school routes. Natural Calamities like heavy rain and flooding make it even harder for them to commute. Also, lack of funds from their Government make it difficult to provide children solutions such as roads, bridges, public vehicles, they badly needed.
