In our rural area there are no roads—all transportation is by riverboat and jungle footpath.
And while most villages have primary schools (1st‐6th grades) where the children walk or kayak to school, they lack secondary schools (7th‐9th grades) leaving a high rate of children unable to attend secondary due to the distance and the expense of transportation. So we run school buses to make sure kids can get to school.
A simple yet life-changing solution
As important, we work within the communities to advocate for girls’ education, ensuring that girls are equally represented in both the school and the school bus!
