Liberia: Traces of America's Ghosts: 201606Lib_31

A young boy at the former Tubman palace in Harper. Most of the children who live there don't have money to go to school. While education is supposed to be free, uniforms, books, and transportation money is often out of reach for many, especially squatters at a rainy abandoned mansion. Some kids do a bit of learning on their own.
