Tibetans, who grow up in the rural areas of Tibet, often have no possibility to attend school. They live too far away from schools or fees for the Chinese state schools are so high that Tibetan families very often cannot afford it. To avoid the sad fate of an uneducated person, every year more than 4000 young Tibetans (aged 18 to 30) cross the Himalayas to reach India on foot. They risk their lives crossing these mountains, often more than 9000 feet high.
