For many of us a big part of our childhood is walking to and from school. We have heard the stories of how our parents or grandparents had to walk miles in the snow to get to school. Perhaps some of those tales were embellished just a little bit, but we got the point. A lot of kids these days have the luxury of being driven to school and picked up afterward, whether it is done by mom, dad, a community car pool or the bus provided by the school. In other countries children don’t have the option of being taken to school in a comfortable car. Their journey for education takes them across rivers, lakes, mountains, and busy and dangerous cities.
