Sierra Leone - Ami Musa,12, carries unsafe water from a pond, the only water source in her village of Pendembu. Ami’s parents died; she lives with an uncle who cannot afford school fees for her or her three siblings. Ami left school after the second grade and would like to be a nurse, but even if her family could pay the fees, there are neither enough schools nor teachers for eligible Sierra Leonean children. ©UNICEF/NYHQ2011-0735/OlivierAsselin
