Being a fifteen year old would be hard because you don´t live with both your parents.

This would be hard especially for the women because they do not have the support of the men. The kids especially the 15 year old would make his life hard because either way they don´t get the support of one of their parents.

Only 48.7% of the population was literate in 2000. (60.8% of males and 38.6% of females)-(Wikipedia)

Ivory Coast is very different in the way they do things and how they live compared to us and how we live in steamboat. We are so lucky that we have family to go home to every night and get to go to school 5 days out of the week.
