Not so long ago, in the plains of Canada and the United States, farm and ranch children had chores that were critical to the family. Most children attended a one-room schoolhouse, and many walked very far or rode horseback to get there. However, some children did not have the opportunity to attend school or did not complete primary school, because of the need to help on the family farm. That picture is not terribly different from what we see in rural areas of Tanzania, today.

livestock and are unable to go to school.

were given to graduating students.
|Teachers encourage parents to enrol their girls.|
|Celebrating graduating students reinforces that|
education is important.
