All over the country, the school year has started with standard one students’ enrollment. Toa Nafasi tutors are going into classes in our 11 partner public primary schools and observing the newly recruited students for motor, hearing, vision and physical impairments working hand-in-hand with government teachers. We’ll soon have the 2022 cohort of students ready to take test 1.
At a parents meeting in Kaloleni Primary School, a grandmother of a student says her granddaughter, Dorcas, who just joined standard one, is unable to see objects placed in front of her. This is a good step working with parents and caregivers of students to identify students’ challenges that lead to learning difficulties. At the beginning of every school year, Toa Nafasi tutors hold parents meetings for newly enrolled families in all schools. In these meetings, parents are introduced to the project and get to hear hands-on what the tutors do yearround with students with learning difficulties.
We’re excited to share that we have a new teammate. His name is Nova and he’s the new chief of operations at Toa Nafasi. He’s a leader with a background in international development work and loves to work with children. “At Toa Nafasi and working with children with learning difficulties, I feel like I am home,” he says.
