Have we taken a moment to pause and consider the things we take for granted? In Singapore, we have an average literacy rate of 97.1% whilst in Sudan, 1 in 4 children cannot read or write. Our schools are sometimes a mere ten-minute bus ride or walk from our homes, whilst for many students in the developing world, they make long and dangerous treks to get to school that can sometimes take hours.

Like many other children his age, Gat Luak also dreams about following his passions and creating a better future, not just for himself but those around him.
