Good Morning Kibogoji Readers,
I have been working tirelessly for the past 3 years to open up a small experiential learning and media center for children in Turiani, Morogoro, in Tanzania. I am proud to announce that the wait is finally over. The Kibogoji Experiential Learning Center, inc is now open and the demand for what we offer is off the roof.
Kibogoji Experiential Learning Center, Inc is the only door to the unknown world for the majority of the children attending it. I’m delighted and very excited for the children. I wish all of them, a great year ahead. I am sure the children of Kibogoji will have a great year full of learning, playing, watching videos, and just having fun.
The goals for the first operating year are:
1) to improve reading and writing skills for the first and second grade students through an intensive reading and writing program.
2) to improve arithmetic skills for the first and second grade students through a rigorous math program.
3) to infuse the use of technology and play into teaching and learning.
4) to introduce an experiential learning program that will pair up children with professionals in our community so that the kids can learn different life and professional skills from adults.
This is such a special year for Kibogoji Experiential Learning Center, Inc because the center has received five laptops and one brand new desktop computer today. In addition, Kibogoji has also received a brand new projector and a sorround sound system. This is just the beginning of a great year ahead. It’s my hope, and without a doubt, that the best is yet to come.
If you would like to help the center become the change you would like to see and/or associate with, please visit: http://www.kibogoji.com for donations and to learn more about what we do. You can also e mail the program director Dr. Shaaban Fundi directly through this e mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
As is the space in which the center is housed is very small. Currently we can only accommodate about 12 kids at a time. The center is open for three hours a day and takes in two classes of 12 kids each hour and a half. I would love to open up more space to accommodate more children. Right now the center accommodates 24 kids a day and about 100 children a week.
My observations for the first month of operation are that, due to limited space, we missing to reach a greater number of children in our community. Since the center was opened we have been turning kids away because of lack of space. If you feel like what we are doing at Kibogoji center is in line with the things you would like to help, please do so by donating your time and/or money to help us reach all children with our service.
Lastly, Kibogoji has hired a highly qualified teacher to run the center. The teacher will be responsible for the day to day operation of the center’s work.
