Last Friday I visited five primary schools, some rural and some urban. Two were right at the heart of what was rebel headquarters during the war. Maybe one of the schools had a decent number of textbooks: all the rest had been robbed at some point. One head teacher showed me the former lock to her office, mangled and broken. Another emptied a box of broken padlocks onto her desk, explaining why the textbooks were being stored in a teacher’s home. Here are some snapshots.
