Another view of Niger, by Kylee Jackson

This morning (Saturday) our group ventured off into the wild to see giraffes. I was just expecting a touristy morning, but it was much more than that. As our guide took us off the main road and into the bush, we saw many small villages. It really put into perspective how much more actually goes on outside of the cities and small towns we have been in. These families are miles away from resources that could be a necessity to their daily lives. It struck me that these kids of the villages might not ever be able to get an education because they don’t have the transportation or money to do so. Experiencing this has made me even more excited to be a part of Remember Niger, knowing that we are helping educate the children we can, and that there are many more possibilities for the future.
