Learning World: Rural Exodus

Learning World February 28, 2014

Part 1 – Mingongs, China

Migrants to China’s ever-expanding cities are denied state education, so they are doing it for themselves. Free schools are catering for this thirst for knowledge.

Part 2 – Rural Hope, Democratic Republic of Congo 

The Democratic Republic of Congo’s Kinshasa sucks the life out of the rural areas around it. Those who fail in the big city end up on the streets, but one school is trying to teach new skills that will enable children to return home and rejuvenate their rural communities.

Part 3 – Millennium Schools, Ecuador

In Ecuador the Millennium schools are on a mission; to take advanced technology deep into the country side.
