The 2020 school year has been tough for children in Tanzania just like everywhere else. Our students were out of school for 3.5 months due to COVID-19. Research shows that short-term educational losses can have disproportionate effects on lower-income children such as the ones we teach at Toa Nafasi. Many of these students also suffer from learning difficulties and the time away from class will most certainly produce setbacks in progress.
Now, we are back in school and our tutors are doing everything they can to help our students catch up. Although the school closures interrupted our typical testing and tutoring schedule, we have since been able to identify all the students who need our support, whether it be medical, psychosocial, or remedial tutoring via our unique pullout program. We continue to work with the parents and caregivers, educating them on Toa’s work, the different learning styles children may have, and how they can help support their educational success.
We make learning fun
