Every day the school’s attendance register is filled in outside the principal’s office at Jambiani Primary in Zanzibar. The principal Abdulla Ali Abdulla found many issues with the school when he started in 2009. “For one there was no furniture. Students were studying on the floor and I’ve started many projects to create a conducive learning environment. My first challenge was to find furniture and as of now there is no student that is learning on the floor.”
