Ubuntu Village opens its doors to bright global learners!

Ubuntu Village School officially opened on September 13th 2014, and welcomed a group of bright young learners!! We are proud to say that our opening session was a major success complete with lots of DANCING, SINGING, AND LEARNING!!!

Ubuntu Village School begins with Nia Assembli which is a time of singing and dancing. During Nia Assembli we call the Village to motivation and purpose!

Mama Wakeelah lead our cultural enrichment class which kick-started our semester-long focus on the classic story, Mufaro’s Beautiful Daughters. After watching the video story, we discussed the moral of the story and discussed key topics on culture, integrity, selflessness, humility and so much more!

Oluko (teacher) Brown lead the academic enrichment class which focused on learning Swahili vocabulary words (e.g., snake/nyoka) based on Mufaro’s Beautiful Daughters. Many thanks to student, Kharhi for  helping with class instruction. “Ubuntu Village, can I get a ‘Y’??!!!!” We practiced reading and writing our vocabulary words.

Oluko Scott and Oluko Boamah lead Cultural Enrichment II which focused on learning about Afrikan masks and their meaning. Our Olukos taught about several types of masks and their uses/meanings. Students were able to choose their favorite mask (based on its meaning) and color it!
