課文:

Tasui is a teenager who lives in Africa. When he was young, he had polio, and now he crawls on his hands and knees. Although he wants to go to school, he must work.

Tasui is only one of millions of children who can’t go to school. Many must work to support their families. Others are sick, disabled or can’t travel long distances. Still others don’t have the finances to pay school fees. Therefore, more than 100 million children will never receive an education. Can anything be done? Global Campaign for Education (GCE) thinks so. It was formed to solve this problem. The movement aims to give every person, especially those in poverty, an opportunity to get an education.
