Scope and content

English transcription: A class in the primary school at Sunyukaia. This village has no roads and no water supply; the pupils are children of nomad families encamped some distance from the village near a water point. Here, the children learn elementary arithmetic by playing shopkeepers.
French transcription: Pendant une leçon à l'école primaire de ce petit village qui ne possède ni eau, ni route. Les élèves sont des enfants de nomades vivant au loin sous la tente, près d'un point d'eau. Ici, ils apprennent l'arithmétique en jouant aux marchands.
Description: Two barefoot children, wearing white shifts, are in a classroom. One is putting something into the outstretched hand of the other. Behind them is a chalkboard on an easel. Hanging from the easel is a smaller board containing various pictures and symbols. There are other items hanging on the wall to the right of the chalkboard.
