A long wooden bridge in Odo-Ota, Nigeria - Aanuoluwapo Odedere

Every child deserves a right to learn and this opportunity should not be limited by barriers. There is always a road that leads to where people live.

The picture was taken during my field activities in south western, Nigeria. It's a picture of me exiting a community on a long wooden bridge as it was the alternative to a flooded bridge which is meant to be motorable. This wooden bridge was not built by the government, it was an idea by probably some individuals in the community. Though people have to pay a token to pass through the bridge.
