Dhaki, 11
Yabelo, Ethiopia

Dhaki's family are pastoralists of the Boran tribe who raise cattle and camels. Because of their nomadic lifestyle and heavy workload, Boran children seldom attend school. Recently CARE opened a 'non formal school' in Dhaki's territory with flexible hours to accommodate the Boran life style. Five months ago Dhaki became the first person in her family to attend school. It takes her over an hour to walk to the stick frame school house from her current home. Her teacher said that even though she is always laughing and telling jokes she is a great student.
