A monastic student gets help on school work from a peer.

At Phaung Daw Oo in Mandalay, upwards of 10,000 students share school grounds that are barely a block long. They are a mix of general studies and monastic students, the latter living formally as novice monks. Here, a general studies student helps a monastic student with his school work as the sun begins to set in Mandalay.
