1. Dongzhong Cave School, China.
Located in one of the poorest areas of China, the Dongzhong cave school was established to provide an education for children who would otherwise not have gone to school at all. Its unique location, in fact, was chosen because the villagers didn’t have the resources to build a school, so they worked with what they had. Sadly, the school was closed by the government in 2011, because, in their words, the country, “is not a society of cavemen.”
