The Young Hardworking Poor of Bangladesh

TEXT FROM YOUTUBE PAGE.

The poor aren't lazy.

In this video I meet 30 kids who were forced to choose between either putting food on the table or getting an education. They are able to study part-time (for two hours each day) because local community members in this rural village pooled their money to form an informal school. The school teacher teaches these children English, Bengali, and Math all for a salary of $15 a month.
