It was an almost surreal to learn parents were sending their children to schools to receive an education and food without knowing the trade off was having their children taught to be suicide bombers.

The most important thing the children will take away from attending school is the power to change the wrongs they face in their daily lives. The students will go forth into the world to change their surroundings for the better because their right to an education was fulfilled. The success of the collaboration will reverberate through generations to come and grow into much bigger things with opportunities for all.
