Today we visited two ANFEN schools, Ecole de Fatima, which we visited before, and Anou Grandi. We returned to Ecole de Fatima to talk to the teachers again, and to sit in on an English class. The class was very well run by a number of ex-pats, who are all either fluent or native speakers. The kids are at various levels, but overall much better at English than in Etoile de Mer. Nevertheless, they all still have great difficulties with English, even at the very basic level.
The second school we visited, Anou Grandi, is slightly smaller than Ecole de Fatima, and has fewer kids and staff. The kids there are also of a younger age. We did not get a chance to sit in on a class, but we spoke to the administration and told them about our program. They were extremely enthusiastic, and said they would be happy to accomodate the Fellows for any kind of program. It’s really great to see people who believe in what we will be doing here, and who work so selflessly for these kids who really need everyone’s support. Working together, there is no doubt that we will do a lot of good for these kids and others like them throughout Mauritius.
