Spotlight: Nigeris floating school

Chalk is placed on a blackboard at a floating school in the Makoko fishing community on the Lagos Lagoon, Nigeria February 29, 2016. In Makoko, a sprawling slum of Nigerias megacity Lagos, a floating school capable of holding up to a hundred pupils has since November brought free education to the waterways known as the Venice of Lagos. It offers the chance of social mobility for youngsters who, like most of the citys 21 million inhabitants, lack a reliable electricity and water supply and whose water-based way of life is threatened by climate change as well as rapid urbanisation.

EDITORS COMMENTS
In the heart of Makoko, a sprawling slum in Lagos, Nigeria, lies a beacon of hope for the community's children. This print captures the essence of Nigeris floating school, an innovative solution to bring education to those living amidst the waterways known as the Venice of Lagos. The image showcases a simple yet powerful scene: chalk placed on a blackboard inside this remarkable floating school. The contrast between the dirty surface and vibrant white scribbles represents not only the challenges faced by these young learners but also their determination to overcome them. For many of Lagos' 21 million inhabitants, reliable electricity and water supply are luxuries they cannot afford. However, this floating school offers more than just education; it provides an opportunity for social mobility in a society plagued by rapid urbanization and climate change threats. As we gaze at this photograph captured by Akintunde Akinleye from Reuters Images, we witness how creativity can thrive even in adverse conditions. The absence of people allows us to focus solely on this symbol of resilience and perseverance. This image serves as a reminder that education knows no boundaries or limitations. It is through initiatives like Nigeris floating school that communities can break free from cycles of poverty and build brighter futures for generations to come.
