As part of their involvement in AfricAid’s Kisa Project sponsorship program, the three girls we support in Tanzania thanks to GIRLS WHO ROCK were recently asked to write to us about education and communication in their society. We are excerpting two paragraphs, written by Grace and Happiness, and we encourage you leave to some questions for them to answer in the next round of letters!
Grace wrote this about Education — do you want to ask/comment on anything about her environmental classes? Leave a comment!
Education is very important in my life because with education I could know how there are different things going in the world, what are the causes of things, like global warming and what their solutions, what should be done so as to solve different problems like desertification and mostly it could help us to live with different people I community and a good examples. It’s through education I know what are characteristics of different tribes and how do people live in their societies. Also, I learn many things which I could us them as asset to help my society and mostly thorugh education I could be employed and help my society rather than if I won’t get education. Other people who didn’t got much education, most of them lack job and they engage themselves in different crimes like the use of alcohol, robbering and drug abuse, which leads to decline of economy of the community and a country as a whole because people will use a lot of money to help those people rather than engage in productive activities.
Happiness wrote about Communication — curious to know more about her Facebook interactions? Leave a comment!
Communication is all about sharing information, ideas and building relationship. People communicate in order to fulfill certain goals, find solution to certain problems and gain knowledge concerning task. In my society I communicate with people in different ways. Through group discussion in the class I get to present my ideas, gain knowledge of certain facts. Through phones I get to communicate with people who are far from me, in case a need arise. Through some networks (eg facebook) I get to find friends and share different ideas. I also communicate with children through stories and songs. Therefore, I can say that communication is very important in our societies.
