In many places in Vietnam, students and teachers are perseveringly pursuing education in extreme hardships and poverty.
Vo Van Huy, a poor student from the central province of Phu Yen Province, who recently inspired public admiration when he was selected to the national Olympic team, is just one of many students in Vietnam who excel academically despite poor living and learning conditions.
In many districts in the central province of Nghe An for instance, students have to travel 4-5 hours by foot to get to school.
Without proper roads, traveling is a nightmare.
In the winter, they have carry wood to school to burn to warm themselves.
Students of Keo Con Primary School in Keng Du Commune work out in the morning to keep their bodies warm before entering their classrooms.
Teachers at Keo Con Kindergarten start a fire for their students.
A group of students carry food and rice with them on a five-hour walk to Keng Du High School.
A sixth grader has to travel a long distance to get fresh water back for her friend to cook right at school.
Half of the 80 km road leading to Keng Du High School is covered with thick mud so teachers have to install tire chains for their motorbikes.
