Info

Students balance on the rim of Ngam-nak's trash pit during a break from classes. Ngam-nak, Tibet (QInghai, China) serves as a school for Tibetan nomadic children, who are dropped off by their parents and spend 8 months a year in the remote settlement until they have completed a basic level of education. Staffed by a handful of teachers and cooks, there are no other activities in Ngam-nak apart from the school.
