One afternoon, a local villager, William, took me and my friend on a
walk around his village, the final destination a primary school where AIDS
and malnutritian are rampant, and students are sent home by hardworking teachers if they don't have a pencil. A teacher myself, I was interested in seeing the school the local children attend. Making our way slowly toward the 10 classroom school, we passed these boys.
Their mother inside husking corn, the boys eyed us first with curiosity, then with delight.
Why weren't these children at school? Good question.
