In the vast rural Ethiopia, many young, smart and beautiful children with great potential remain out of school due to lack of text books, basic supplies and daily required nutrition. Most children hike bare-foot more than 5 to 10 miles to schools daily. In order to support themselves and in most cases the whole family, more than 30 % of children between the ages of 5-14 are engaged in hard labor such as fetching water far from their hut, collect fire woods, plow the land and shouldering the stress of being tasked as bread winners at prime stage of their development. Unfortunately most rural families are forced to keep their children out of school because they could not afford to buy basic school needs.
