Student walking to school in Meno
The roads to school in rural Haiti are unpaved and undeveloped. This makes the travels for children going to school tiring, challenging, and long. It takes about one and a half hours to walk to school one way. (view small | med | large | orig)

Rosemaine Senjour, Accelerated Education Student.

Rosemaine Senjour, Accelerated Education Student.
Fifteen-year-old Rosemaine Senjour had never attended school before last year. Had it not been for the accelerated education program, she almost certainly would never have had a chance to start school. Now she is in level two in her accelerated education class. She is fully literate, advancing quickly in math and science, and dreams of becoming a nurse. (view small | med | large | orig)
