Young Nigerians choose to fight Boko Haram with books

Gathered in makeshift open-air learning spaces, teachers and students in Nigeria are resisting Boko Haram's reign of terror against education. “They don’t like education; they don’t want it,” one 19-year old student says. “So just by doing this, we are all fighting them." Working with UNICEF and other organizations, local educators are offering free education to students who have been forced to stay home for years.
