Miatta and Kiazulu do not come from the same tribal background but they have been living together in the same village since they were born. Miatta is 12 years old and Kiazula is 10. One day, as Miatta and Kiazulu struggle their way to school, Miatta popped the big question: why don’t we have a school in our village? With this conversation they learned about their human rights to primary education as children. Author: Veronica P. Fynn is a born and bred Liberian.
