Fiske Nyirongo and Kamapala Chukwuka began to create children's books with African characters and relatable story lines out of necessity.
Do you remember going to school and the first thing they told you was E for Eskimo, I for igloo, F for fox .... confused because you have never ever seen those things before.
Then the literature goes on to highlight caucasian children going to the beach and making sand castles .... can you blame a child for not being engaged or interested in school. It has nothing to do with them from day 1. 
On the flip side most parents aspire to send our children to international schools and then those schools do not teach our children any indigenous knowledge or the very country we live in. So we have children who do not speak local languages and have no pride in their own heritage. 
We need to talk about this. Representation Matters

The world has advanced so quickly. However, education in Africa is not keeping up at the same pace. Be it the curriculum content, teaching methods or stakeholders commitment, there is an urgency to adapt to the times. Furthermore, conversations around Education have only focused on the traditional models. Until now.
The Educated Africana, hosted by Tebogo Kangote III brings together diverse voices to have in depth discussions about Education in Africa.

Description

Fiske Nyirongo and Kamapala Chukwuka began to create children's books with African characters and relatable story lines out of necessity.

Do you remember going to school and the first thing they told you was E for Eskimo, I for igloo, F for fox .... confused because you have never ever seen those things before.

Then the literature goes on to highlight caucasian children going to the beach and making sand castles .... can you blame a child for not being engaged or interested in school. It has nothing to do with them from day 1. 

On the flip side most parents aspire to send our children to international schools and then those schools do not teach our children any indigenous knowledge or the very country we live in. So we have children who do not speak local languages and have no pride in their own heritage.
