From November 6th to November 14th, I spent ten days in the District of Bambama. The primary goal of this mission was to meet students and share with them the main objective of my trip to the US as a Young African Leadership Initiative (YALI) member.
To encourage student involvement in school, I handed school supplies those with highest academic grades and those who behave well in class. I had an open talk with them about my experience at YALI. By handing school kits to students with good grades and good effort and conduct, I want to encourage them to work harder at school.
The meeting ended with students promising to do better the next semester. By rewarding hard work and academic excellence, I want all students at this middle school to know that their efforts matter, and they can count on us when it comes to motivating them to become good students.
