sen students

By Martin Kihara (Joshua Studio)Joshua is excited about its new Special Education Needs Department! (Let’s call it SEN-D for the sake of this blog.) We feel like the Lord’s SENDING us into realms that are not only new for us, but also for Tanzania.

December 3 was International Day of Persons with Disabilities (IDPD), when JSA’s SEN joined with other partners around Arusha to celebrate!Following the registration of our SEN Department with the Arusha Education Authority, we were invited to participate in this year’s Arusha Disability Workshop. The workshop, themed around “self-employment as a disabled person,” showcased what people with special needs can do.

Students from different SEN schools attended the workshopOur SEN students (in JSA red jackets), represented the school by showing visitors and students how to assemble, repair and troubleshoot a computer. Led by their computer teacher, Mr. Dennis, they explained what the different components of a computer are.

Voila! Computer is up and running!!The workshop was capped off by a little friendly competition. Students from the different SEN schools used their computers to answer common knowledge questions. (Think “Jeopardy!” But with computers). There was a lot of fun all around.

Competition Time!It was a fun day for our SEN students as well as a learning opportunity for their teachers who got to share their experiences with other teachers.

Now that we’re SEN-registered, THAT department is ready to take off! We’ve just received funding from a kind donor to build a two-classroom unit with teacher’s office and two disability toilets. Watch this space – there’s more to come!Contact UsFacebookTJF WebsiteJSA WebsiteEmail
