Young Lahu Mother

She is a very young mother, only 15 years old. Girls who did not attend school will not only missed the opportunity to acquire knowledge, but will marry earlier, and become a mother at young age.

This is one of the social problem affect Lahu hill tribes in the remote hill, far from the school. It is tough life for them as they need to walk a long way from school to their village. The lucky one will have their elders arranged for pick up truck to transport them, otherwise it will be a long distance walk. Many missed school. The education problem not only affect girls, but young boys too.
