Nice pic... I have a very much pity on them.... but it is not issue only one place or country.... but this situation is also aries in other part of the world also.... ( Mostly of Interior place... )... pls dont be sad on my comment....
Maybe i'm being naive, but why dont the locals band together and fix the bridge? All they need is a decent amount of rope, and their lives will be alot safer. Or if the bridge is unfixable, build a raft. I guess we are supposed to look at this kind of image and think we should really help these people. But that is incorrect, they should learn to help themselves.
I am from Indonesia. it's taken about January this year. when reported, it became a national issue cause that district (Lebak) actually not far from Indonesia's capital (jakarta) ... It has been fixed now, and I think a permanent bridge has been operated.
+Nino Rostomashvili, I am from Indonesia, that's true I am also very sad to hear that of January last year But problems may occur anywhere, Not just in Indonesia And I of those who lucky because can go to school in comfort condition We should emulate here is their passion to be able to learn to improve their quality of life..
This is the problem, they didn't want to rebuild it because they don't care. If you say you build it then, they will said no. If you persisted long enough, they will build it and propagate to the whole village saying their government build it and they are great, and the rest of the world couldn't care.
Well i hate to say this but its only 3ft above a slow flowing river! If someone did fall its not like they would die. . . . . And maybe this bridge was repaired straight away its not like they are stupid enough to not repair it!!!!!!!
i know they have rebuild the bridge already, but not until the problems were made public. i guess what sucks about my government is that they act ONLY when people started to notice how bad their works are.
^no, all they care is money, if they really care about image, they wouldn't make non-Indonesian make this kind of post, pitying us, as if we're from a really poor & unmanaged 3rd world country, to the world, that's how our country looks like, pitiful huh? if only our government filled with honest and hard working people, we should be already on par with other advanced country
it's embarrasing know this kind of reality happening in Indonesia, and the gov't is clearly shut their eyes and ears just ignored this situation. This had been a highlight in national media, as now the gov't has taking actions in building a proper bridge and other supporting facilities for public school and national education.
That's only alittle potrait of education in Indonesia, there a lot of children have to walk more than 5 miles to go to school.. walk trough mountain and cross the river.. everyday.. & thr gov don't do much to help.. (╥ ﹏╥)
Well it is happening in one particularly primitive village in Indonesia. With all due respect, please don't generalize indonesia as a poor country. Just google city of jakarta or bandung or bali, indonesia have metropolitan cities too. Thats because indonesia is a one big nation.
Indicative of Indiana Jones movie. But seriously youth now a days -- that I know at least -- don't even want to walk up the street so crossing a bridge for higher learning would be out of the question.
These kids are lucky to have a cool adventure twice a day (they surely go back home as well :)) and come on people, this is a great workout for all muscles! These kids will be stronger and healthier than most of your children. Dangerous? Seriously? What's the worst thing to happen? Falling in the water and getting wet? Wake up, people: if that would really be dangerous, parents would never let these kids go this way...
I am indonesian. The taken picture was located not very far from our Capital City, jakarta. Thus now you can imagine how's the condition of indonesian education infrastructure in remote areas. Corruption did enfeeble our most valuable resource, education!
