Description: In India, miliions of children go to school at night, in desert tents, and on mountaintops as well as classrooms in buildings. They go by bicycle, boat and wheelchair. They go because they think that going to school will change their lives, but millions of children don't go to school at all. Created by the nonprofit group Going to School, this charming documentary celebrates what school can be to inspire millions of children to go to school. Ages 5~12. 25 minutes.

Going to School on a Boat
In this truly inspiring film, meet three nine-year-old girls, Veera Veni, Durga Devi and Dana Laxmi, who live with their families on a boat in coastal Andhra Pradesh, travel by a special school boat to their land-based school. School is under a thatched roof and has no walls. Here they learn how to make dolls out of coconuts, how to draw letters of the Telugu language on slates and on the sand with shells, and then finish up by writing postcards.

Going to School on a Mountaintop
Going to School on a Mountaintop means you have to be able to climb. Skarma knows how to climb, so does his friend Sonam - it is how they get to school. You have to be able to climb if your school is nestled in the mountains. There is no electricity in this school or in the village, but in the summer months this does not matter - school moves outside where there is plenty of light. Today, high in the mountains where India touches Tibet, 29 children are learning about their world and playing hide-and-seek in the bright, cold sunlight.

Going to School in a Tribe

Meet Sagarita, a 10-yr-old girl of the Saura tribe as she attends school in her village of Tarasinghi on the hills. At school she learns how to count with sticks, make abacuses out of mud, and use blocks with Oriya letters. All the tribal children know how to use a bow and an arrow, so even at school they learn to identify letters by throwing an arrow on the correct letter on a string. Some days they go on nature walks, go door to door doing village surveys, or even run a pretend market.
