Sowetos mini graduates
A year after the Soweto Child Friendly Space in Jinja, Uganda was set up; they celebrated their first ‘Graduation Day’! The eldest group of children are now leaving to start primary school after completing their early years education at the Centre.
This would not have been possible a year ago, but with the provision of early childhood learning, the Centre staff liaising with local schools to make places available and the building of relationships with parents in order to promote the value of education for children, this milestone has been reached.
Matilda, a teacher at the Child Friendly Space says; “ I love working with the children. They are the future adults of tomorrow and future politictians. Developing them at this early age will help them to change. I just love it.”
