School Dilapidated Structure (poor learning environment)
This image shows the effect of poor learning environment in most public schools in Nigeria.
Such devastated school buildings are usually found at the outskirts of the measure towns and in most rural areas which are far away from the gaze of the authorities as well as the citizens who may question the state of the affairs. It is to be noted that poor turn out of the pupils in such dilapidated schools is as a result of abject poverty of parents and guidance while a reasonable percentage of the teachers are poorly educated and in most cases have not been paid salaries for ages.
Taken in Calabar, Cross River, Nigeria.
Hephzibah and her little brother Jaden, said to me that they would love to be models when they are older. And I urge them to strike the type of poses they would display in a shoot when they grow older. And they came up with this pose among others.
This photo was taken on the 4th of January 2019.
They say a photo is worth more than a thousand words so I tried to bend in the definition of happiness and freedom in one photo. I captured a bunch of kinds playing on a flooded field with poor clothing, but they didn\'t care. They made me reevaluate my definition of happiness itself.
