It’s been long since I last post so I guess I surely need to apologize. Today, I realized the impact we actually make on these children’s life. When I first joined in, I was just a stranger for the children whom they referred to as teacher but gradually, they became friendly and started cooperating. However there was still a gap between us. The children were considering me as their teacher while I wanted to be their friend. I never realized when we became friends but today, I know that I have win over their trust and this was a must for me. I also realized that the kids believe in us and each time, they come at the centre, their faith and their hope to learn increase. Eli-africa surely deserves the credit.
At eli centers, the children learn through activities and this enhances their understanding. Away from the restraint environment of classroom, even they want to learn and to achieve something. When I consider these kids, I become hopeful for a better tomorrow and I know this can happen only if we awake our consciousness and help the children in achieving their dreams. These children have the potential to transform our motherland into a utopian place. They need help to discover and unleash their potential. Helping these kids involves understanding, approaching, teaching and leading. I guess the best way to understand these children is to connect with them and try to become their friends. It’s a path worth treading.
