In public schools the whole community including the students take care of the school. Students are expected to sweep out the classrooms and look after the grounds after class. They are trained to grow their own crops and harvest them when ready. ⠀
Meet Safina, she's in grade 6 at Sisimba Primary school. I took this portrait of her after classes, she was about to go sweep her classroom. I wish I had more time with her, she was the sweetest and most humble. Safina says she wants to be a nurse just like her elder sister.
