Aljazeera covered a story last month about Ugandan students mining sand to help pay school fees. Take a moment to watch this short video-- it really explains some of the challenges that are faced despite "free" primary school. As the reporter mentions, "the temptation to stay away from school is strong." Many of these same issues are faced by the children we support. Most C.R.O. children were originally found working on the streets. The video mentions the International Labor Organization (ILO) and C.R.O. is actually a member of that organization as well- working to advocate for children's rights and for fewer children to be working.
