Nowadays one often wonders whether education and the youth could ever be closely linked, especially in Africa. This week Kurus English confirmed that regardless of the current challenges, the two are still very closely linked and that there are different forms of education available to the both the affording and the disadvantages communities. Our students not only visited proactive institutions and projects but also got to understand the meaning of the terms “affording and disadvantaged” communities as they engaged in direct conversation with youth from the areas that we visited. The following phrase is our students’ summarized understanding of education: Inception, digestion, and Implementation.
If one fails to follow the given principles the end result will indeed be ignorance. Our lesson for this week is that language on its own is a major role player in education and that English is still the main tool in cross-cultural communication.
