“The desire for education is high in our community and we know of its benefits. That is why we have accepted that our children learn in temporary makeshift classes. In a way, it is a step-up for us considering the previous condition we were in." says Nisrit.
One of my sons, whom I enrolled here in the Filfele School in 1996, is now a teacher at the same school. It is my desire that my other children will follow in his footsteps. It is gratifying to see that our children are having employment and making a living, which is beneficial to us all”, she continues.
Filfele is now growing into a township and the student population is increasing. To this day, there are children that learn in makeshift classrooms, using their laps for desks and rocks for seats, to get the education they desperately need.
As for Nisrit and her children, they eagerly wait for not just education, but quality education, to take them further into their future.
