Yesterday at the AFE Primary School we celebrated International Children’s Day by reminding the children how special each one of them is.
All the children painted their hand on a big poster as a sign of their uniqueness. In some classes they also had a chance to be the teachers and teach us some words in their languages.
Acknowledging the power of children to make a difference by just being themselves and by becoming our teachers is something we should do every day. Therefore the work of providing education and a safe space for children to grow and develop is fundamental.
As C. S. Lewis once said, “Children are not a distraction from more important work. They are the most important work.”
