Luxury of Education

One of the saddest things about visiting the school was that there was a crowd of kids almost as large as the student body, watching us give out t-shirts and school supplies. All those children could be accommodated if the school were bigger, which is a project Musa is currently working on.

We don’t realize how lucky we are in our western countries. According to my travel book, which was published in 2003, only 66% of Tanzanian children attend primary school, and only 6% attend secondary schools.
