Archbold Mushi
Role: Head Teacher of Joshua School Arusha
From: Kilimanjaro, Tanzania
Trained: Joshua Teachers Training College
Loves teaching because: He loves kids. When he’s teaching he’s doing the right thing, it’s his thing.
Why Joshua?: “Most people in our community cannot afford expensive education. They are struggling to pay school fees, buy clothes and feed their children. We decided to charge a little bit and find support from other places in the world. The difference is we are raising kids and trying to train them physically, mentally and spiritually. Most people want to bring their kids here because we are that kind of school. We have hands-on interactive learning. It is like the teaching in Western schools. It is making a difference. Our kids are more confident and we are teaching them to think.”
