"To me this picture represents the hope of a bright and better future for the Senegalese kids. Upon visiting NdjiaNdjia, a village in Senegal, I couldn't help but notice that most kids were uneducated because they barely had enough schools to accommodate all of them and in addition to that at a certain grade level the kids would have to drop out because there are no advanced school grades. Nevertheless this picture shows high aiming and being satisfied when you reach the top." Image and text by Perpetua Nkem. Senegal, 2017.
