This is Idris Sakari, he has been a student at the Bema School since February 2017. He is 26 years old and belongs to the Foulani tribe; they live as seminomads in wide parts of Nigeria. His village is close to the school.
His greatest desire was to learn how to read and write and we gladly found a sponsor for him who pays his school fees.
Idris is a very good student. At our last visit in May he showed us his exercise books and very proudly read to us.
He really enjoys school, he is always the first in the morning and has not missed school for a single day.
The teachers are very satisfied with his progress.
It was on this occasion that the Bema School agreed to start a particular school class for adults.
Apparently news spread quickly and a young Foulani girl appeared in the classroom, also with the wish to visit the school.
Shafa Atu is 19 years old and speaks Hausa. Her first task will be to learn English with the help of the teacher and her classmate.
The formalities were completed promptly, a sponsor was easily found, the teacher welcomed her at Bema School and presented her with an exercise book and pencils.
We would love to give more children and adults the opportunity to visit a school and are grateful for any donations.
