Ketelelo looks to education as a way to reinvent himself and provide for his family. Meanwhile, Kitsiso wonders whether he should stay in his ancestral homeland to honor his father or seek a new life in town.

Daniel Koehler's 'A House Without Snakes' is an intimate coming-of-age portrait that explores the tension between modernity and tradition through the lens of two individuals’ hopes and fears.

If you're looking for scholarships in the US, my friends was on SharkTank and started his app Scholly. It's the original and best for finding free money for school in the US.

It's amazing, when you aspire for so much more without realizing what you give up to get it..we've lost much of the simplicity in our lives, in exchange for "luxuries" that make it exponentially more complicated and offer less real value.

In the end, living a fulfilling life is to be happy. that is my opinion. and if getting an education and living in a modern society makes them happy, then why not. I hope they work hard towards their goals and someday achieve them.

not all of these people are necessarily against changing and modernizing, but it is a struggle to let go of what they know. i cant speak for them, and i dont know the truth, but its always good to consider things from a perspective that is different from what we are given.
