Map of A helpful school in Kibera Slums It is well known that private schools perform well compared to government schools this is because in private schools there are enough teachers and ready to assist in any case while in government schools the number of teachers is few compared to the number of pupils or students the same case happen to those schools that are build in slums areas but we thank the magoso centre that is supporting the orphans, the neighbours around by giving them food, water and ready to support in anything no matter where one is coming from the tribe or the status through this we find that the pupils who are learning in magoso centre are doing well compared to other schools.

Importance Of Computer Studies In Future.

By a male, 16-21 years old, in Bumala, Kenya
Map of IMPORTANCE OF COMPUTER STUDIES IN FUTURE. During my whole life in primary school i went to a school in our village where computer studies were not taken.Thus because of this,i remained computer illiterate until it was very late in my final year that our english teacher told me that it was important for us to study computer since we would need the knowledge in the future.This is because the knowledge will be required in every job and so it would be very hard for computer illiterate people to find jobs.She told us to inform our parents and tell them to take us to secondary schools where computer lessons are offered or taken to computer courses after school.When i came to my current secondary school,i was lucky to find these lessons being offered there.I took the lessons seriously and i am very glad that i am coping well thus it will not be hard for me to find a job in future.
