This documentary about dangerous ways to school in Afar was published on Youtube about seven years ago.
In the video, we see children – boys and girls – walking up to two hours to school in a burning sun in the Danakil region of Ethiopia – the lowest point on earth. Although the kids are used to the harsh conditions, they say it could at times be unbearable due to sand storms and extreme sun. It is heart-wrenching to see kids walking for hours and hours ( five days a week) to get to school.
Apparently, much has not changed. Watch the video below.
