School “Buses”

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!
