It is not to get good grades and get a good job, it is to make you a better person with a thirst for more knowledge
#AakritiFoundationNepal strives to educate every child.
We share you an inspiring story from Tanzania.
Every school day teacher Daudi Mulenger carries a large blackboard up the hill from his homestead and leans it against the trunk of a lone acacia tree. This is Noomunye preschool, one of eight established since 2004 across Piyaya village.
A token fence of brushwood and branches circles the tree. Arriving in twos and threes from unseen homes, the pupils sit on sun-bleached logs arranged in a rough semi-circle close to the blackboard. Lessons begin with songs, the children standing and clapping in time. The blackboard lessons are in reading – ‘kusoma’ and number work – ‘hisabati’. Maasai children speak Maa as their mother tongue, but have to become fluent in Kiswahili for their primary education; and later in English if they are to progress through secondary school.
