Newspaper Successes: An Update

This week we have employed a local from Sagweshi village to help with the project. Ronnie studied journalism at university and is now unemployed, much like most of the area. His English is perfect and he works really well with the kids. He has been with us at Driehoek and Mmaweshi and will be with us at Katane later this week.

Mmaweshi, which has been most promising with the newspaper, really took advantage of what Ronnie had to offer. Slowly, the learners’ articles are developing proper headlines and conclusions. Using our explanations for the newspaper as a base, Ronnie has been able to help the kids understand their purpose for writing better. He has really been an invaluable part of the newspaper
