Belola Village’s Children
Not only do Belola Village’s children have to walk 5km each way to the nearest school, but they have to carry 5 litres of water with them – as the school has no water. This walk is too hard and too dangerous for many of the children who should be going to school – not to mention those of pre-school age. This has been the case since the Indonesia militia destroyed the school in 1999. Estimates are that a Prep to Year 2 school at Belola will change this for situation for 100 – 150 children.
