Can you imagine giving children, ages 5 to 14, a full, modern education with just a few worn books, some pencils and paper? There are only two teachers for all of Portrero Platanal’s children, but Ninfa has the caring and dedication of ten. Although the conditions she and her students work in are basic and challenging, she has a vision for their future. With electric light opening up both leisure time and potential work hours after sunset, she can create inspiring lesson plans when the inspiration strikes: on her own time, at her own pace, in the comfort of her own home.
