Interview with Emmanuel Mark-Hansen, founder and teacher of the Noyaa School in Jamestown. The school is located in the middle of a fisher community. The infra structure of the area is in very bad state and the whole neighborhood is run-down. The citizens live under poor conditions and are focusing their lives mainly on fishing and preparing the catch. Even the children start working with their families. With the school and the volunteer work Emmanuel Mark-Hansen and his colleagues want to bring education in the neighborhood and to provide the possibility of a better future for the children. But it´s not easy to run the school, motivate the kids, convince the parents, pay as well the other teachers, buy the equipment and construct the rooms with nearly no budget.
