A reminder on how perspective can change a story
Watch this Buzzfeed video showing students engaging in a class exercise that highlights challenges around the world
Education is at the centre of everything we do, and this BuzzFeed Video reminds us how easy it is to forgot the impact of what it can do in this powerful lesson a teacher gave his students.
“Your job as students who are receiving an education is to be aware of your privilege, and use this particular privilege called education to do your best to achieve great things, all while advocating for those in the row behind you,” notes the narrator in the Buzzfeed video.
Those people in the last row include the 734-million people around the world who live on less than $1.90 a day, according to recent estimates by the United Nations. Join the world as we reach to meet the United Nations’ Global Goals for a better world.
