Classroom Fun

A Masai child speaking out loud the English alphabets in a kindergarden class, with the help of a Masai walking stick as a pointer, which is commonly used among Masai people for walking, herding, and fighting.

 

I had a chance to participate in their English class. The "classroom" was a fairly large house formed with timber poles which are plastered with a mix of mud, grass, cow dung and human urine. The cow dung actually ensures the roof is waterproof! Inside there were about 20 students with one huge blackboard, a couple books, and a desk. Each student had their own scrapbook.
