SHOCKING STATEMENTS OF INTERVIEWEES
Along with many teachers, two female students named Pilli and Neema were also interviewed in the school. Access to these students was possible after the collaboration with teachers in providence of environmental education and tree plantation. According to these two students, ’
The distance from school to home urges us to give up because we arrive at school very tired. Also, even when we return back to home, we get there late and do not have time to study and do homework’.
Moreover, in the answer to another question, Pilli and Neema revealed another shocking secret. According to them,
‘The infrastructure of school has become worse and not friendly for us to study. In the classroom, the seats are fewer than the number of students. So, only a few students can sit down. Therefore, this caused a major decline in our academic performance’.

Education is a powerful weapon which can be used to change the world. But in Africa, getting education is far more difficult than one can expect.
