The clean environment was witness to the activeness of both learners and teachers at the school.

First day at the Pan Africa annual review meeting: learning and reflections

This was my first, but unfortunately, probably the last annual review meeting of the CLTS Pan Africa Programme. We started the day with introductions and ice-breakers followed by updates from the different countries that a part of the project.
