UPCOMING PROJECT -ALET PROGRAM 

      Active Learning and Teaching (ALET) Is the program which improve equal and quality inclusive education in marginalized public primary schools in Mara region-Tanzania mainland.

      Active learning and teaching program started as an ideas after bearing in mind that, more than 55% of children in my classrooms were not active in learning while 45% of teachers teach traditionally in their class. Active learning stands in contrast to traditional modes of instruction in Tanzania primary schools in which students are passive recipients of knowledge from an expert and expelled children with special needs in learning context due to environment difficulties.
