Phương Độ is a suburban secondary school about 4km from Hà Giang city centre, with 200 students, mainly ethnic minority children in highland communes living in extremely difficult conditions.
Due to dangerous terrains and lack of transportation, many students have to get up at 3 or 4am to walk to school.
