All children have the right to learn. Moreover, education is not only a right but a way of fighting poverty, disease and inequalities of society. This is one of the things I've experienced during my journeys.
I said goodbye to the Korowai cannibal tribe two weeks ago. I learned them as nice, hospitable people. After that I walked in the jungle for almost two days by the time I approached the River Sepik. A river bank here doesn't mean a great place to relax but somewhere you can meet crocodiles and poisonous snakes. As a result I didn't want to chill out but move on by boat which took two days. I arrived in Sengo, a small village with the river on one side and a swamp on the other. I needed a landline phone to call my family to tell them everything was alright. The only place to find it was in the only grocery store in the village. Thanks to telecommunication I managed to order a small plane and after a lot of adventures it took me to the capital, Port Moresby, where I finally took an international flight to Singapore.
Have I told you that I was about to travel to Kathmandu, Nepal? I needed a break from the jungle and decided to spend some time in a vivid city. After landing, I rented a car to drive south to Kanakpura. Since children's day is here, I gave a free English lesson to the students of the local school. Education is the only option for the local communities of children to break out of poverty, child labor or premature marriage of girls. I had a marvelous time with the guys. They are incredibly smart, open and absolutely cool. Teaching them was great after all the adventures so far. We wish with the guys from Kanakpura a happy children's day for all children in the World!
