Back at it

We’re in the second week of the term, and it strangely feels like I never left. The kids are back to their rowdy selves, but we’re slowly making progress. A few of my close volunteers (both in proximity and friendship) haven’t been able to attend school because of strikes in their villages. The communities want a tar road from the government, and they believe closing school (and in some radical cases, burning it to the ground) will capture some attention. My village happens to have a tar road, and I feel blessed because it’s business as usual here. It’s disheartening to see communities close schools as a ploy instead of prioritizing the education of their children. Then again, I guess it’s impossible to fully understand the needs and wants of individual communities.
I just hope the other volunteers can get back to business as usual as soon as possible!
