Education is your passport to the world

If you could go anywhere, where would you choose? These Liberian children share their dream destinations. 

At schools in Liberia – where we feed 121,283 children every school day – some of the children have been learning about other countries. We asked them where they’d most like to visit.  

Jethro, 12

“I would go to Europe. It looks like a good place. I would see lots of children and I would feel happy with them. I am not worried about the cold, I can stand it!” 

Theresa, 9 

“I would like to go to India. I don’t know the place, but I’ve heard people talking about it.” 

Massa, 16

“I would go to America. That’s the place I like. There are lots of good things there to go and see.” 

Remember, 10

“I would like to see Monrovia (Liberia). I’ve never been there before, but my other auntie is living there.” 

 Josephine, 16

“I would like to go to the UK. The reason is because I learnt that many of the people on that side are well educated.”

 Princess, 10

“Germany. Because I love that area. I don’t know anything about it. I just want to go and see it!”

With education, we hope that these children will have more opportunities to explore the world. 

As Dr. Seuss said: "The more that you read, the more things you will know, the more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”
