September means back to school!
After a summer full of adventure, the Amani children are ready for the new school year. The older
students have their national exam taking place this October and November, which will allow them to
receive government sponsorships to universities and colleges. This means taking extra classes to ensure
that they are prepared. We know that this hard work will pay off, and we wish them the best of luck!
In addition to their studies, the children have enjoyed another trip to the waterfalls! During this trip, the
children rode bicycles, tuk-tuks, and trekked a rocky path. There was no shortage of fun on the excursion,
which can be clearly seen when looking at the smiles on their faces.
Bringing the children into nature teaches them many valuable lessons, one of which is maintaining a healthy school-life balance. There is no question that being a student today can be stressful, and the upcoming exam for the older students may be especially daunting. However, the children can learn that stress can be mitigated with good friends, exercise, and fun!
Our goal is to prepare these children for happy and successful lives ahead. By providing them with a
healthy balance of academic support and enriching activities, we are teaching the children valuable
lessons that can be applied throughout their lifetimes.
