Imagine a life in which you must walk over 3 hours a day just for the “privilege” of being able to attend school. In addition to the vast distance, you cross rugged terrain, endure extreme weather conditions and face possible physical injury. By the time you return home, you barely have time to do your chores, let alone your homework.
This is a daily reality for many children in rural South Africa, which often leads to frequent absenteeism and ultimately dropping out altogether. Without school, the cycle of poverty continues.
