From the librarian in Boni, Jonas : After a drawing session I had an educational session on hygiene with a question and answer period. The two books that we read were Le Conte du Savon Contre les Microbes [The Story of Soap vs. Germs] and Issaka est Malade [Issaka is Sick]. The two books discussed topics about hygiene like how a mother should care for a child who is sick. In the story about the soap, the children learned that they should wash their hands with soap before and after eating. After the stories, the students responded to different comprehension questions.
From the librarian in Dohoun, Alidou : On November 18th, I had an educational session about how to succeed in school. The session was attended by primary school kids of all the classes. First we discussed why it's important to go to school; what it takes to succeed in school; and the wishes of parents. The students gave many responses. 'They said they go to school to learn to read, write and count.' 'They go to school to succeed in life.' 'They go to school to seek knowledge.' We added that a student must listen well to his/her teacher, learn their lessons and be well-behaved. At the end, each student told his favorite subject. The students really liked this activity because they were encouraged and learned that only hard work can pay off.
