Education in Afghanistan ~ Inspiring Young Minds

The BBC has a photo sequence on schoolchildren in Afghanistan. These kids really want to learn! Lema is from a village in the mountain with a long walk to and from school. She doesn't know what she wants to be in the future, but likes teaching a lot.
Mohammad studies in Sherzad high school. He says most of his schoolmates study in the open air because there are not many rooms in his school which is over-crowded. "I want to study wherever I can, I wish we had rooms but I learn a lot of things every day. I want to be an engineer in the future."
