Education is the future, Tanzanian children (in general) love to study and look forward to going to school but it is true that many want to have at least one meal a day. Going to school is usually an adventure in many cases because of the amount of kilometers they have to walk in many cases and because they often have to carry the water from home.
In Tanzania education starts from the age of 6, in order to go to public school they only have to have the uniform and if they want to eat at school they pay for the meal: which is equivalent to 10,000 tsh which is about four euros. In the public school they study in Swahili, the official language of the country thanks to Julius Nyerere, and they start with English as a complementary subject in primary school. When they go to secondary school, all their education is English, so on many occasions the transition from one to the other is an important challenge.
