Going to school in Haiti after the earthquake | Education | The Guardian:
"In Nwayo, a camp of 3,000 people outside Croix-des-Bouquets, children who do have access to school have begun attending a 'child-friendly space', where they can play safely, away from the troubles of the camp.
'The majority of kids did not go to school before the earthquake,' says Reuben Emmanuel, principal of the child-friendly space at Nwayo. 'Now they are in the child-friendly space taking the opportunity to have some education.'
