Anyone with a job has to commute, whether it’s walking from the bedroom to the in-home office or driving for an hour in traffic. Some take the train or ride their bike. Others, such as Kanesh Shorukov, a teacher in northern Kyrgyzstan, ride their horses.
The trek to and from the school takes Shorukov three to four hours each day and he’s paid $115 per month. Why does he do it? To show his students that a bit of difficulty shouldn’t discourage them from doing important work. “Our main goal is to raise children by setting an example for them,” he says in the video.
That’s quite an example.
