In Their Words: Why Children Love to Go to School  
“In science and technology, I learn how to do electricity and how to take care of things around the house,” says Anitha Niyonsenga, 13. Her enthusiasm is not at all dimmed by the fact that in rural Rwanda, she can’t apply all that she’s learning. “I know how to plug in a TV, even though I don’t have one,” she explains. A year ago, Anitha was forced to drop out of school to work off a loan for her widowed mother. Thanks to a grant from World Vision, she’s back in school.
