Chibombo Tuitions

By Francine | KF Grade 12

I still can’t believe the tuitions were only a month, because I feel as if I learned more than I could in a year. I, like any other person who went there, had goals that I wished to acquire at the end of everything. I would proudly testify that Chibombo has impacted this stage of my life.

Chibombo made me realize that the main reason we went there was not just to learn how to apply my knowledge but to discover who I really am: my capabilities, weaknesses and strengths. Chibombo made me realize that I could do more than KF, my family, Chalo, and mostly myself expected. Despite having heard multiple discouragements about Chibombo being a village, I decided to go with a positive mind and attitude, because I was so eager to learn.

I met many different kinds of people there, people with different characters, different beliefs, but I tried to humble myself to zero and learn. In the first place, I thought I wouldn’t manage being the only girl there, but that wasn’t the case. I managed to create a bond with this new family.

I am proud to say that I did a lot of community service, because most days I volunteered to prepare meals and help with chores. This really impacted me and made me into a responsible person so I wouldn’t embarrass KF in any way.

It was fascinating to see how we managed to finish different syllabi or different subjects with clear understandings. We really did a lot, including past papers and the like. We also learned life skills, and we did community service by teaching children in the village who couldn’t speak any language other than their native tongue. In this project, I would want to applaud all the KF students for their participation, determination and commitment.

I would write a novel if I was told to write everything that happened there. Before I finish, I would definitely want to thank Mama Nkowane for the decision of us going there. I also would want to thank the KF staff, Vincent, Justin, and everyone who believes in me, especially throughout the holidays. Chibombo was productive.
