(Diversity: Awareness) In a small, remote mountain top primary school in the Kenyan bush, hundreds of children are jostling for a chance for the free education newly promised by the Kenyan government. One new applicant causes astonishment when he knocks on the door of the school. He is Maruge, an old Mau Mau veteran in his eighties, who is desperate to learn to read at this late stage of his life. Moved by his passionate plea, head teacher Jane Obinchu, supports his struggle to gain admission and together they face fierce opposition from parents and officials who don?t want to waste a precious school place on ?such an old man.? This session will explore the importance of literacy and its effects on various people.
Learning Outcome: Participants will understand the importance of literacy and its effect on various people.
