Meet Bintou

In the village of Sugula, the Speed School classroom is very typical of the region, made with traditional red mud. Several parents sit in on the classes, participating fully in the lessons. They are so proud to have a school in their village and even prouder to have their children as pupils there. The concentration in the Speed School in Sugula is incredible, and the teacher is so good at making the children interested

Bintou says, 'I love school. I thought I would never go to school because it is very expensive and it is too far away. Before Speed School, there was no school in our village. I also have to participate in home duties but now that I go to school, I have fewer duties.'
