Careen, age 15


A 15 year-old CCI-supported student at the Tanzanian Children's Village

Starting last year, Careen, whose favorite subject is Chemistry, has been able to perform experiments in a new science lab under the guidance of a qualified science technician. Today, she animatedly discusses her most recent lessons, where she used glass beakers and flasks to learn about chemical reactions and conductivity. Careen’s teachers are trained to encourage students to think critically and ask questions. Students have access to tablet technology, quiet study spaces, and individual academic support, all of which has empowered Careen to improve her academic performance each year.
