Little girl has to walk through mud barefoot just to get to daycare

  • All children have a right to an education.
  • Unfortunately, some children have it easier than others.
  • This little girl has to endure walking through mud every day just to get to daycare.

We all have a right to an education. Children, in particular, are the ones who are most in need of an education as their early development largely relies on whether or not they are provided with proper care and guidance. For a lot of parents, work keeps them busy. Which is why they send their kids to daycare.

This little girl has to endure walking through a mud-filled forest every single day just so she can go to daycare. Her trials and tribulations were documented by a netizen named Lorgy Magdalino, who shared the footage on Facebook.

There are two videos. The first is about four minutes long and starts off with the little girl walking barefoot through mud. You read that right. The little girl wasn’t wearing any shoes or slippers. The child was wearing a pink Hello Kitty shirt with a matching white Hello Kitty backpack.

The little girl had to traverse a winding dirt path, navigating through numerous obstacles. She endures daily hardships that no child should bear. She isn’t alone, either. She was accompanied by at least three other little girls, all seemingly headed to daycare.

The second video is about two minutes long and starts off with a child’s audible cries. Perhaps due to the pain of having to walk barefoot through such a dangerous path, the child couldn’t help but scream and cry.

The video is proof that many Filipino children need better access to schools. Children living in remote provinces are being put at risk just by the mere act of going to school. Preschoolers such as as the little girl in the video shouldn’t have to go through such an ordeal just to get to the nearest daycare center.

The netizen who uploaded the video shared an update and urged people to help the little girl by donating. Referring to the child as a daycare learner,” Lorgy shared the address where people could send their donations. Based on the comments, Lorgy is a teacher.
