A group of children from all corners of the world all sitting together at summer camp discussing their school stories. It is revealed that they don’t all go to school, and some of the school kids are jealous:
American boy:  ‘I can’t believe you can play all day, and don't have to do any homework.’

Indian boy: ‘I can’t because I have to go to work from noon till night, otherwise my family can’t afford to eat. I so wish I could see my friends, and learn new things.”
Nigerian girl: ‘I can’t go to school because I’m a girl. People think I should be married and having babies, not be at school learning. They think it’s a waste of time. I want to be a doctor, but I won’t ever have the chance.’

American boy: ‘You have to work but you’re only 8? And get married. ?’
