This is one of the students in a school in Ramam village located at 2365m. in West Bengal,India.As the teacher explained to me, these children wake up very early in the morning in order to help the parents with the everyday tasks in the farms and then,depending from which village they are coming from, they have to walk 6-8 km just to reach this school.
