Haider goes to school in his wheelchair. Every morning, Haider's friends arrive at his house 30 minutes before school begins. Deciding who gets to push Haider today, they tip the wheelchair back onto its two big black wheels and are away. Haider lives one kilometre away from Raspunja Free Primary School. One kilometre was a long way for Haider without wheels. In fact, one kilometre was so far that Haider didn't go to school until he was given a wheelchair. Now he wheels wherever the boys take him, and they take him everywhere.
Going to School’s mission is to empower all children to develop the skills they need to participate in the economy and to solve poverty, unemployment, and inequality. We believe in the power of stories to transform the way children learn and create their own opportunities.
And we’ve got more stories to tell to create the next generation of problem-solvers.
