I usually talk about Early Childhood Education in my blogs, but I thought that this story was worth mentioning.
When you really want to educate children you will find a way.
After a survey which discovered that students in the community of Dokanaisuva were not getting a preschool education; Analesi Tuicaumia director of Little ones Learning Centre “took it in her own hands to provide kindergarten education to disadvantaged children.”
Based on the article in Fijitimes.com, she started operating a free “mobile kindergarten” twice a week for the children that did not have access to preschool.
Tuicaumia told Fijitimes.com that “kindergarten was an essential step in the transition to formal education, and highlighted that those who could not afford it were often left behind.”
Besides academics, they also teach the children hand washing and tooth brushing skills.
Children can learn anywhere as long as the information is engaging.
I thought this was a wonderful idea and shows that when you really want to make a difference in the community, you would go to any lengths to do so.
