A group of seniors at Fort Myers High School are taking action after reading a book and are paying it forward.

The book  "A Long Way Home" by Ismael Beah inspired them to better the lives of child refugees in war torn Sierra Leone, Africa.

The goal is to give students an education and the cost of tuition only $100.

This weekend is their first fundraiser.

Dominika and Shaloma joined WINK News This Morning to talk more about operation classroom.
