Tuesday, May 19th School Visit

Today we are visiting a school in the Kimara region. KPE doesn’t conduct sessions in schools, but Ed requested that we have this opportunity. The school is large, with open air classrooms and the ever present finches flitting in the rafters. 270 of the student in this particular school are orphans. We all brought school supplies which we will leave with the teacher. Ed led a session with the students (10-12 year olds?) explaining where Canada is and what it is like. By African standards, Canada is sparsely populated. Nova Scotia, Ed points out would easily fit within the area of Tanzania, but while Nova Scotia has a population of less than 100,000, Tanzania’s population is 40,000,000.
