It is hot season in Rwanda, and international schools are on summer holidays. Governmental schools will soon be on summer break as well.
Many parents are happy but also worried about what their kids will do at home all day. They do not want their children to forget what they have been learning during the school year.
The OLPC corner, located in the kid zone at the in Kigali Public Library, hosts children from 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM. Every child is welcome and it is free of charge.
Children have the opportunity to read, write stories, and play educational games, including typing Turtle, memorize, and maze. Children can also work with simple programming languages like scratch. All of those activities are available in XO Laptop.
Instead of staying at home alone, children can come to the Kigali Library to take advantage of theÂ computer. Any kid is welcome to come.
Thanks to the guidance of Celestine NGARAMBE, OLPC facilitator, they learn, they create, they share, and they explore.
Kids are having fun through learning. We believe that holidays are not meant to be spent sleeping and watching movies; rather, holidays here mean to change the situation youâ€™ve been living in to experience another opportunity.
