Every year the monsoons turn this desert into a sea. Water levels rise as high as you and I. When the rain stops, the water slowly sinks into the ground, leaving salt behind. Saltpan workers and their families move into the desert to make salt. They build houses and install pumps to bring salty water from under the ground into surface basins; water that will crystallize into six-sided salt cubes. Children move into the desert with their families and while their families work, they go to school.
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.
