Photo Essay: School Day

A typical school day for a Touch A Life child is a far cry from the days of forced labor that shadow the past. Dressed in neat uniforms, carrying school supplies and books in new backpacks, elementary and middle school students spend the day at a private school near the Touch A Life Care Center.

Photographer Nancy Borowick followed a group of our students through their school day and offers us all a glimpse into the true freedom of education.
