It was on the 18th of March when all schools including universities in Tanzania needed to be closed due to this dangerous disease outbreak. Sadly there were only two weeks remaining before my end of semester 1 examination. The second day after the schools were closed I went to my village.
For the first week I stayed in the village, I did the youth task force as it was indicated by the founder of Make A Difference Now Organization. I and other MAD students (Stanley, Omega and Christina) participated in the Youth Task Force as a group. We managed to educate a member from 5 families on COVID-19 and prevention methods whilst practicing social distancing.
I and other MAD students (Upendo, Peter and Innocent) were later given a chance to stay at the MAD guest house. In the village there is no conducive environment for me to study. Mama Theresa provided me with the internet that facilitated my online learning. The MAD organization provided me with a proper balanced diet, gloves, sanitizer and masks that would help prevent me from getting coronavirus. I wash as well as sanitize my hands every time before I touch anything.
During my holiday I made some videos showing how to wash hands for at least 20 seconds while singing happy birthday as well as showing how banana stew (which is my favorite food) is made.
On the 17th of this month our president announced that all 13th grade and universities would open on 1st June. I am excited to go back to school again.
I hope everyone is taking precautions and good care to prevent getting the COVID-19. We all hope that this will come to an end by Lord’s Mercy. Stay home and be safe. We love you all,
