My name is David Zamora Munoz. I am ten years old. I live in Punta Arena
I live with my mother, my father, my two brothers, and that's me here.
I walk for an hour to get to school. My school, "El Riito" (Little River) is a friendly and healthy school.
This is my principal and his name is Yader Jose.
SOT (Spanish) Yader Jose Cruz, Principal, School El Riito: This school is totally different from other schools, because other schools don't have the accessibility we have. This school is committed to gender equality, the inclusion of children with special needs, and does everything to provide a caring, high quality education. Another of the components this school has is running water and personal hygiene education. Here is where children wash their
hands. We provide them with soap and towels, to that they keep clean.
SOT (Spanish) David Zamora, 10 years old: Before we eat we have to wash our hands because when you play you get dirty, and then if you eat without washing you can get sick.
The molthers are part of the school and they run the food committee. We play a roll at the school from Monday through Friday. I'm always here involved with the school.
SOT (Spanish) Anyoli Sanabria Lopez, UNICEF Education Specialist: In poor communities like this one, education is very important. Education is a key factor in helping people get out of poverty, and the Child Friendly Schools we believe are creating a support to achieve this. Poverty also limit's people's views and this kind of school sets out to release all of the children's potential, to get them to believe in their abilities and to realize their dreams, their goals;
and that is what education should achieve.
I wanna be a doctor or a teacher, whichever would be the easiest to accomplish.
I can't imagine life without school because we wouldn't learn anything.
Life without our school would be terrible.
