Lisa, Floyd, Karen and Tony joined Fr. Gerard at the school associated with Our Lady of Fatima Parish in Geita. They spent the day learning about parochial education in Tanzania.
The schools feed the children. Here the children in the primary school are eating porridge in their classroom.
Floyd tours the kitchens and tells sister that she is doing it wrong because the firemen do it. The one pot was full of beans and maize. One room feeds the primary school and the 2nd room is for the secondary school.
Older children sang to us and told us a bit about themselves and very warmly welcomed us to their school.
Some children stay at the school because they live far away while others commute (walk). Here is the school dorm room. Notice the 3decker beds. The dorm is fairly new along with another school building which they hope to use soon. They are also constructing a hall that they can use for a lunchroom and assemblies.
