Meet Wogene

The Speed School classes look and sound very different from the government classrooms. The walls are covered in pictures and posters, and the children are encouraged to answer questions. This all sounds very normal to anyone educated in the West but is in stark contrast to government school classrooms, often packed with 70 plus students, where the children spend most of their time copying down text from a blackboard.

Wogene became a volunteer to help out-of-school children. He says, 'these children are from my community and are like my brothers and sisters, and I want to help them.'
