So many similarities 

Nicole and Neeta visited the WGC education partner Hekima Girls Secondary School today. We met with Headmistress Sister Esther about a nutrition study regarding the students’ diets and also with teachers from around the Kagera region about strategies for slow learners and effective parent / child communication. The teachers’ top issues? Their school day is squeezed for time, they are teaching kids who still need foundational work in language acquisition (they teach and test in English yet kids speak Swahili conversationally) and the government has rigid rules on testing and curriculum. Hmmmm somewhere we have heard these things before ;)…… #hekima #bukoba #wgc #girlsempowerment
