NEW YORK, Oct. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- See video from UNICEF at:

The state of Bihar in India is home to one of the first great universities in recorded history. But in present day Bihar, education is still beyond the reach of millions. It is estimated that about eight million children between six and 14 years old are out of school in the country. Many of these children are hard labourers or domestic workers and have to endure extreme poverty due to social, economic and gender factors. Available video includes a narrated news package and b-roll.
