In my tribe, we go to a different type of school

Someday I would be honored to meet you Chief Mundiya

“I’m called Mundiya Kepanga. I’m the chief of the Huli tribe in Papua New Guinea. …If we want for our children to live in a sustainable world, their education must be based upon three big pillars: the respect of cultures and traditional knowledge systems, the main principles that are important for our family, and the lessons that can be learnt from modern education systems.”

Mundiya attended the launch of the 2016 Global Education Monitoring (REM) Report in London and met Director General of UNESCO, Irina Bokova.
