The story behind the photo of this old woman will make you reconsider your education goals.

Access to free and quality education is among the basic rights of an individual. Aside from having food in his stomach, shelter above his head and clothing for his body, a person's education should be well-taken care of because it can determine his fate as he goes through the course of his life.

Take this woman's story for example. You will surely change your perspective about your education once you finished reading. A homeless woman was spotted studying in the streets amidst the city's noise and her poor condition.

The photo was originally posted in Facebook by netizen Xtiane Tabaranza who spotted the old woman along a streetwalk somewhere in Manila.

She is busy in studying and doing some curricular activity. Despite of her age and noise around the surroundings, she kept on doing this just to earn some knowledge from books.

Her photo quickly became viral in the social media because of the lesson she taught: Age and status is not an excuse to neglect your education. People were commenting on how they were inspired with her story.

A lot of people wanted to raise donations for the old woman to introduce to her a more comfortable way to learn. Tabaranza is currently coordinating with a popular teleserye organization to help the said woman in the photo.

Worldwide organization UNESCO said on their site: "Education is a fundamental human right and essential for the exercise of all other human rights. It promotes individual freedom and empowerment and yields important development benefits."

Despite of the vital role it plays, in a third world country like Philippines, the importance of education is often overlooked. As of 2009, more than 15 million Filipinos do not have access to any form of education due to poverty.
