... school work which we would consider to be 3rd grade work. You can tell they really push their students and teach them alot. The story that our friend told was so interesting. She is Masaai and grew up in a traditional boma hut. When she was about 12 her father wanted to marry her off but she wanted to go to school. A friend's mother helped her hide for two months and then took her to the Massai Girls School. She stayed there for 2 years and then finally decided to ...
