First radio arrives in Kibera, Kenya
It is with great excitement that we announce the arrival of our first radio in Kenya! A teacher at St. Catherine School in Kibera, Kenya, is the recipient. Serah Mucha of World Corps Kenya, who has partnered with Ears To Our World (ETOW), delivered our first radio herself.
Regarding this delivery, Ms. Mucha wrote:
The school is situated in Kibera, which is the biggest slum in Africa; it has 145 children and only 5 teachers, so this radio could be counted as the sixth. :) The buildings are dilapidated but what caught me was the eagerness for the children to learn and the excitement of a new method of learning in the classroom...
[I]t was so wonderful to give the radio away and see the smiles on people's faces...
This radio, provided by Universal Radio, is just the first of many that will be sent to teachers at St. Catherine and other local schools. Teacher Reagan, the radio's recipient, and World Corps Kenya are committed to providing ETOW with constructive feedback so that we can ensure our program is best tailored to their needs.
Thanks to Ms. Mucha and World Corps Kenya! Thanks, too, to our wonderful sponsors Universal Radio and Etón Corporation. We wish Reagan and the other teachers and students of St. Catherine School our very best.
