The project’s objective: to convey the personal stories of children whose lives have been transformed through the gift of education. Elley and Heward’s journey would take them into the deepest rural villages where they would experience the diverse and rich cultures of the people and be embraced by the generosity of the students, parents and the local communities whose lives have been changed.
