Making a Child's Education a Community Goal in Tanzania
Firelight staff, Kristen Molyneaux, is visiting Tanzania right now and spent the day with children at Elimu Community Light, a Firelight grantee-partner in Arusha. She sent back these pictures of children learning their alphabet and numbers. Elimu Community Light's education program hinges on a community-based model of early childhood care & development that engages families in their children’s education. In order for children to learn best, they have created an holistic method of support where parents, family, and community come together and participate in early childhood care & development interventions that support the child.
This is Kristen with the children at Elimu...making education fun!
