Smiling Student - Liboré, Niger

Category: Travel Portraits


Photo and caption by Donavon Gaudette

I took a picture this while I was visiting a rural school. These kids were so thrilled when we gathered up all the pens, pencils, note books and pads we could find after we found out that they did all of their work on chalk tablets and shared one pencil amongst the whole class when they had paper to use!

Location: West Africa, Liboré, Niger
