Yang Keumsook starts Art classes in Kimori Academy School

The morning of 3rd September 2018 is characteristically freezing. As always, the month of September is known for long and heavy afternoon rains. Yesterday it had rained the whole afternoon.

This morning, blankets of thick clouds, hide the sun from smiling to the world. There is gloom everywhere. It does not require a fore-teller to vaticinate a rainy afternoon.

Along some rural path in Kimori village, two people are walking side by side towards a murramed road. They are an African man and a Korean lady. The lady has a backpack on her shoulder. Her hands are dipped inside her jacket’s side-pockets in an effort to keep them warm.

“It is going to rain again heavily this afternoon,” the African Man said to the lady who in turn looks up in the sky and nods her head in agreement.

They meander the path; occasionally jumping over pools of water that got collected from yesterday’s rain. They also need to be careful not have their clothes grabbed by Mauritius thorn-trees that line both sides of the path. They are headed for Kimori Academy School where the lady, Yang Keumsook, is going to start her Art classes; an Education program by AHADI Organization where she volunteers with.

As part of the development strategy, the organization partners with schools and Institutions, for the implementation of most of its programs. Among the partners, is Kimori Academy and Kobel Mission where 34 orphans, who are under AHADI’s Education Sponsorship (Orphans and Vulnerable Children Education Sponsorship) Program study and stay during the school term.

The African man accompanying Yang Keumsook is the Organization’s staff, a Volunteer Coordinator, assigned to be with her and provide her with any necessary assistance including translation from English to Swahili and vice versa to the locals and the volunteer respectively.

After five minutes of walking, they arrive at Kimori Academy School’s gate which upon entering through, a magnificent school’s buildings come upon them. They then proceed for the Administration Block where they are ushered into the office by the Headteacher.

Karibuni Sana. Habari ya Nyumbani?” Mr ngetich welcomes them, deliberately speaking in Swahili. He had a week earlier met them during introduction and had known that Yang Keumsook was able to understand and respond very well to Swahili greetings. Only Greetings.

Asantii,” Yang Keumsook responds confidently, arousing hearty smile from the head-teacher.

Time is allocated from the school’s program for her Arts classes. She is going to teach the Pre-primary unit and grade 1 and 2 for the next 10 days.

She then proceeds to the Pre-primary unit’s classroom where pupils are very excited to see her. They stand up respectfully when she enters then door. She greets them in Swahili, “Habari yenu wanafunzi? (How are you pupils)”

“Njema sana, mwalimu. Karibu darasas letu (We are very fine, teacher. Welcome to our class) the pupils chant their responses and sit down.

Yang Keumsook then introduces the day’s lesson. She is going to teach them how to make a model of a fish using a paper. This, evidently, arises excitement among the pupils as smiles registered in their young faces.

The class lasts forty Minutes. At the ring of the bell, all the pupils are happily displaying the work of their hands; Paper-fishes. They chant their thanks to Yang and welcome her to the next class tomorrow.
