Even teachers have a lot to learn
I have been participating in the activities organized by the TCE project for five months. I was very interested in the policy of implementing the Sport in Schools program as a form of promoting the physical and psychological health of the pupils. At university I always hated physical education, but through the information that I received from the personnel of the ADPP TCE project I became motivated. Physical education can have an important influence on an individual's physical and intellectual development.
I had been thinking about basic sanitation but here we didnt have any project to work with us and we never made plans to clean our streets and yards. However, one day the School Health Agents from the TCE project passed on information to me, explaining about the importance of the cleaning campaigns they organise. They began by cleaning up the school yard and they never stopped. I was very impressed by the School Health Agents who encouraged me about basic sanitation, so as soon as they left I decided to follow their advice.
I never used to sleep under a mosquito net because I had some negative reactions, but after the School Health Agent informed me about the importance of using a mosquito net, I then decided always to use one. I appreciate the project activities and I hope the project will also reach out to the communities and not only to the schools because there are many people who are not using mosquito nets.
