Back to school: How do you study?

As classes begin again next week, we thought we’d pass on some study motivation from the kids we partner with around the world. Here’s how they study for that next big test.

Kenya 

By solar-powered lamp: Neema, 11, and her sister Harusi, 14, show us how they study with their solar-powered lamp. The lamps World Vision gave the family have allowed the girls to improve their grades. "The lamps came as a relief to us," says their mother. The family can't always afford the kerosene for their lamps, so the solar lamps provide a reliable after-dinner lighting option for the studious sisters. (Photo/Chris Huber)
