I just came home after a volunteer period in a Nepali orphanage after completing my matriculation examinations. After 12 years in school, the time in Nepal made me think about the way we think about education.
Education is often determined with the word school. It’s something that happens through teaching, in class rooms, with some kind of equipment. A certain authority, maybe a teacher or the village elder, offers knowledge to the ones listening. And that is how you raise awareness and gather understanding – behind the desks, being an eager student.
