Most Prized...

Indeed he is...

I first met him last May  when we were in Yunnan, China

He was nine years old then....



After our meeting, I went away feeling really sad
that I wasn't able to help him.(in my current capacity).
He lived in the rural areas in Yunnan
and he grew up in a farm...
He is a child with a special need
and there is no school around his village suitable for him...

I remembered how my heart ached when I saw him....

and when he walked away that day...

I was determined to ensure he gets a decent education
at some point...
(The title prompt is from the Sketchbook challenge)

Happy Midweek to you and yours!!

always...

This is so sweet. I'm a teacher, I work with children with special needs too. It's hard to hear how hard it is for them to get an adequate education in a lot of countries.
