Swiss humanitarian Kindergarten teacher emigrating

There are hardly any kindergartens in southern Senegal, and Marielle Furter, a kindergarten teacher from Canton Aargau,is doing something about it. With donations from Switzerland she will build the first kindergarten ever in Niaguis, where there is no running water, no electricity and only scant medical care. From an idyllic world on the shores of Lake Hallwil, she's heading to a country where 54% of the population lives below the poverty line. (SRF/swissinfo.ch)
