20 Apr

10m; Morocco

Synopsis: Child labour is one of the biggest obstacles to Education International’s aim of building a world in which every child has access to free, quality public education. In Morocco, where thousands of children every year are forced to drop out of primary school and go to work to help support their families, the Syndicat national de L’Enseignement (SNE) has had great success with its program to fight child labour by keeping children in school. The film follows Sara, who was compelled into domestic servitude because her family could no longer afford to feed her. With the help of the union, Sara is now back in school and working towards her dream of becoming a paediatrician.
