Seven year old Mohamed herds his family cattle in Afar region in Northern Ethiopia. Afar is one of the poorest regions of Ethiopia. The infrastructure there is minimal, and an estimated 90 per cent of school age children are not in school. Most of Afar’s tribesmen are pastoralists, their lives bound to the fate of their cattle, sheep, goats and camels that they raise in one of the most harsh environments on the planet. Boys as young as five start to herd their family’s sheep and goats while girls help with household chores. Mohamed is just one of the many pastoral children who are deprived of a chance to realize their right to an education.
