2 Day Challenge: How Kisa Scholars Created Positive Change in Their Communities in 2023

In 2023, 1,034 Tanzanian girls were able to successfully develop and implement 47 2-Day Challenge (2DC) projects in 21 schools or local communities. These 2DC projects are a special undertaking that involve the coordination and implementation of small, impactful community projects designed by Year 2 Scholars enrolled in the Kisa Project, a two-year leadership course that prepares girls in their last two years of secondary school to attend university and create positive social change in their communities. This program is implemented by Daring Girls’ sister organization, GLAMI, and girls who participate in Kisa Project are enrolled in Forms 5 and 6 of their Advanced Level studies, aged between 17 and 20 years. 

Every year, Year 2 Kisa Scholars work to identify and solve a community challenge as their capstone 2DC project. Together, they realize the power they have to create positive change in their own communities, while also helping local communities see and understand the worth of educated, empowered young women.

The 2DC involves many small-scale, community-based initiatives that promote self-reliance, foster development through training and small infrastructure improvements, and typically have an immediate and dramatic effect on local communities. Typical projects include water safety and quality improvements, health and hygiene improvements, and community education initiatives that improve knowledge in many areas, including agricultural practices, entrepreneurial approaches, and more. 2DC projects help girls develop planning, leadership, and project management skills – all qualities needed in the next generation of leaders in order to transform their community and environmental health.

These are the 2DC projects completed by the Kisa Class of 2023:

Project #1: Ashira Girls Secondary School – Group 1

Project Title & Location: Rehabilitation of Dining Benches at Ashira Secondary School

The Problem: Students in the school had poor hygiene when it came to eating habits. Students polluted the school environment by throwing unwanted substances all over the grass and school grounds.

The Solution: Kisa Scholars worked together to create 20 dining benches, each sitting 4-5 students. 100 students benefited from these tables, eating lunch on surfaces that they then cleaned once they were finished eating, to prepare the tables for the next meal.

Project #2: Ashira Girls Secondary School – Group 2

Project Title & Location: Education on Personal Hygiene and Personal Leadership at Ashira Primary School

The Problem: Most primary students lack awareness of how to keep their bodies clean. They also did not understand the importance of taking leadership in their own lives.

The Solution: Kisa Scholars developed pamphlets and taught lessons to younger students about the importance of personal hygiene and cleanliness. Younger students learned how to take care of their bodily cleanliness, and also received lessons in how to become young leaders who cared for the well-being of others.

Project #3: Kibosho Girls Secondary School – Group 1

Project Title & Location: Market for Appropriate Technology, in the town of Moshi at the Muungano Makonde Carvings at Majengo Sokoni Ward

The Problem: In Moshi, there are many producers who have no specific market for selling their products. They do not know how to create nice packaging for their products that prevents them from selling through online platforms like Instagram, WhatsApp, Twitter and other platforms, and thus rely solely on foot traffic that can result in only a few customers each day or each month.  

The Solution: Students held a session with Muungano Makonde carving artists by teaching them how to use technology in order to boost their sales. Kisa Scholars explained the benefits of using technology and social media and helped the artists create social media pages to promote their items. They also helped artists create better packaging for their carvings.

Project #4: Kifaru Secondary School – Group 2

Project Title & Location: Repairing a Kitchen & Desks at Kifaru Primary School

The Problem: Most of the desks at this primary school were broken, which meant 3-4 students had to sit at a single small desk, which was not conducive to learning. Also at this school, there was no kitchen area and food was cooked outside, which led to diharrea and other health issues for students.

The Solution: Kisa Scholars built a kitchen space for food to be cooked, and built desks for students.

Project #5: Kifaru Secondary School – Group 1

Project Title & Location: Construction of an Incinerator at Kimaseki Secondary School in Arusha, TZ

The Problem: A lack of incinerators at the school was leading to environmental pollution and illness amongst students, who were experiencing urinary tract infections and fungus as a result.

The Solution: Kisa Scholars worked together to construct an incinerator at the school, to ensure proper disposal of items that were causing illness.

Project #6: Langasani Secondary School – Group 1

Project Title & Location: Facility Cleaning & Provision of Bed Sheets and Blankets at Majengo Leprosy Station

The Problem: Girls saw that the environment at Majengo Leprosy Station was not conducive to elders when it came to toilet cleanliness and lack of clean and comfortable bedding. Rags were sometimes used instead of blankets, resulting in elders suffering at night during the cold season.

The Solution: Kisa Scholars worked to procure enough blankets and bedsheets for all elders, as well as toilet liquid soap, a mopper, and broom to help staff keep bathroom and living spaces clean and hygienic.

Project #7: Langasani Secondary School – Group 2

Project Title & Location: Sewing & Provision of School Shirts to Girls at Msito wa Tembo Primary School

The Problem: Many girls at the Msito wa Tembo Primary School could not afford to purchase school uniforms, especially shirts and skirts that are required for attendance. Lack of uniforms was negatively impacting girls’ performance and attendance at school.

The Solution: Kisa Scholars worked together to sew school skirts for girls in need. Girls were able to attend school because of the skirts, resulting in better attendance and performance. Girls with new skirts also reported being more confident at school.

Project #8: Machame Girls – Group 1

Project Title & Location: Purchasing of Food Dishes at Machame Girls High School

The Problem: At the high school, there was a shortage of dishes for serving food to students. Damaged and missing dishes led to wasted time for students who had to clean plates before using them. Dirty dishes also led to food contamination for students who were not eating from clean surfaces.

The Solution: Girls worked together to raise funds to purchase new dishes for the school. Their work has resulted in more time for school activities because students no longer need to reuse dirty dishes, and has resulted in less spread of food-borne illness.

Project #9: Machame Girls – Group 2

Project Title & Location: Rehabilitation of the Laundry Tap and Surrounding Floor

The Problem: The old laundry tap was broken which increased the overflow of water, which resulted in excess stagnation of contaminated water that caused high chance of diseases such as malaria and typhoid.

The Solution: The tap was repaired and the floor was renovated, hence there is no more contaminated water and no longer an eruption of diseases. Students and school administrators are healthier and happier now that they no longer have to worry about water waste and wastewater contamination.

Project #10: Magadini Secondary School – Group 1

Project Title & Location: Storage Pads Box for Emergencies at Magadini Primary School

The Problem: In Madadini Primary School, the absence of sanitary pads at school resulted in girls missing school during their menstrual period. Parents of the girls could not afford to buy sanitary pads for their children, either. Cultural and religious taboos as well as limited social norms makes it challenging to teach and talk about menstrual health in society. When girls lack access to appropriate menstrual products, they are more likely to stay home from school, leading to poor learning performance, poor grades, and to girls dropping out of school.

The Solution: Kisa Scholars provided younger girls with education about menstrual health and how to stay clean when they are on their periods, since this education is not provided at home. They also established a project of storage boxes at the school for emergency purposes, seeking community donations of funds to purchase menstrual supplies as well as donations of sanitary pads. Now girls with acute need can access emergency support.

Project #11: Magadini Secondary School – Group 2

Project Title & Location: Employment for Success at Boma Mbuzi District

The Problem: Youth in the Boma Mbuzi District lacked entrepreneurship skills. Because these youth did not understand how to earn an income, they were engaging in illegal activities such as theft in order to meet their daily needs.

The Solution: Kisa Scholars invited local youth to attend a seminar on entrepreneurship, focusing on how agriculture can provide nutritious food and also some income.

Project #12: Mawenzi Secondary School – Group 2

Project Title & Location: Allocation of Direction Posters at Mawenzi Secondary School

The Problem: The school layout is broad and there are several buildings on campus. However, there were no directional posters available to show students, staff, or visitors how to reach different blocks of the school. This was causing confusion, lateness, and wasted time at the school.

The Solution: Kisa Scholars created a plan for directional signage at the school. By creating a plan and developing appropriate signage, newcomers, teachers, visitors, and students now know where to find the locations they are seeking.

Project #13: Mawenzi Secondary School – Group 1

Project Title & Location: Youth Self Awareness & Disciplinary Development for O-Level Boys at Mawenzi Secondary School

The Problem: A significant number of Form 2 and Form 4 boys at the school were creating difficulties at the school by showing a lack of discipline, which had begun to impact academic performance among them and other students.

The Solution: Kisa Scholars worked with a facilitator to help the boys learn ways to express challenges in their lives. Boys learned how to say what was wrong, discuss challenges they faced at home, at school, and elsewhere. Kisa Scholars supported the facilitator’s work by creating motivational posters that would remind the boys of the need to be disciplined at school, which reminded them to utilize the tools they learned from the facilitator to navigate their challenges in ways that would not impact others’ academic learning.

Project #14: Mkuu Secondary School – Kisa Group 1

Project Title & Location: Planting Trees at Olele Secondary School

The Problem: Kisa Scholars saw that the lack of trees on campus was not only detrimental to the school environment, but it also meant that students had to study and conduct other activities always in the full rays of the sun. Planting trees would help provide much-needed shade.

The Solution: Trees now provide students with a better quality environment and shade to study beneath during the sunny season.

Project #15: Mkuu Secondary School – Kisa Group 2

Project Title & Location: Provision of Education and Training on the Understanding of the Need for Higher Education at Ubaa Secondary School

The Problem: Younger students did not understand why higher levels of education were important, and did not understand opportunities that could be available to them with higher education.

The Solution: Kisa Scholars prepared lessons to teach the younger students why it was important to form good study habits and pay attention in school in order to continue their education at higher levels. They taught younger students about the ways in which higher education would help them earn more income and live healthier lives.

Project #16: Mkuu Secondary School – Kisa Group 3

Project Title & Location: Provision of Gender and Menstrual Hygiene Education at Kifufuu Primary School

The Problem: Younger girls did not understand menstrual hygiene, because this is a topic that is taboo to discuss both at home and in school.

The Solution: Kisa Scholars developed a training session to provide correct information about gender issues and menstrual hygiene, teaching younger girls how to keep their bodies clean and healthy during their monthly cycles.

Project #17: Msangeni Secondary School – Group 1

Project Title & Location: Renovation of Concrete Foundation at Kaseni Primary

The Problem: Buildings at this primary school were in states of disrepair, at risk of collapse if the foundations were not repaired. Building foundations were weak due to rainfall and poor soil. Kisa Scholars learned that if the buildings were not repaired, properties could be destroyed (creating waste and expense to repair entire buildings), and the number of students allowed to enroll in the school would decrease due to fear of falling buildings, which could have affected up to 170 students, 5 teachers, and the entire community loss of a facility for students to be safely educated.

The Solution: Kisa Scholars worked to secure support from adults throughout the community to come together to renovate the old foundation of the buildings. They brought the community together to make the critically needed repairs, preventing the future expense and waste that would come with entirely rebuilding the failing buildings.

Project #18: Mwika Secondary School

Project Title & Location: Installing a Water Tank in the Girls’ Dormitory at Mwika Secondary

The Problem: Water was very scarce in the girls’ dormitory because there was no storage unit to hold water from the rainy season that could be used during the dry season. Girls were required to leave school grounds to fetch water for cleaning the dormitory and toilets and for their own personal hygiene. Sometimes girls missed school to fetch water. And there simply was not enough water to go around: toilets were dirty and leading to urinary tract infections and fungus.

The Solution: Scholars installed a 3000ml water tank that secures water from two sources, rain gutters and from a pipe connected to the main school water collection supply. Girls can now maintain proper hygiene and no longer have to miss classes to collect water.

Project #19: Nuru Secondary School – Group 2

Project Title & Location: Construction of Benches at Tengeru Hospital in Moshi, TZ

The Problem: Scholars saw there were not enough benches at Tengeru Hospital for patients and guests. This caused avoidable discomfort amongst the sick and elderly.

The Solution: Scholars constructed 4 benches that would hold 7 people per bench.

Project #20: Nuru Secondary School – Group 3

Project Title & Location: Installation of Solar Panels at Nuru Secondary School

The Problem: There was no alternative source of power at the school when electricity is cut off during power shortages or bad weather.

The Solution: Students installed solar panels that could provide ongoing power to more than 10,000 students at Nuru Secondary School.

Project #21: Nuru Secondary School – Group 1

Project Title & Location: Toilet Rehabilitation at Amani Centre for Street Children

The Problem: Poor toilet design as well as the age of the toilet sinks, flash tanks, and handwashing sink led to poor hygiene for children at this centre.

The Solution: Kisa Scholars repaired bathroom facilities and installed new toilet items and better flooring to provide children with better bathroom hygiene.

Project #22: Oshara Secondary School – Group 2

Project Title & Location: Making Benches at Moshono Hospital

The Problem: Moshono Hospital is a government hospital that is in need of benches for patients, especially in one of the wards for women and children. This department receives 50-60 patients per day, which have no place to sit, which leads to pain and aggravation.

The Solution: Kisa Scholars made two benches that can seat 8 patients each, providing a place to rest and wait for 16 patients at a time as they wait for their doctor to see them.

Project #23: Oshara Secondary School – Group 3

biosafety cabinet

Project Title & Location: Construction of Bio Safety Cabinets at SIHA Dispensary

The Problem: Scholars learned that local SIHA Dispensary lacks bio safety cabinets to lock away harmful chemicals, as well as expensive and breakable laboratory equipment. Left out in the open, there can be environmental and health dangers associated with leaking chemicals that lead to accidents or fires.

The Solution: Kisa Scholars researched and constructed bio safety cabinets in which chemicals and equipment are now being stored.

Project #24: Oshara Secondary School – Group 1

Project Title & Location: Rehabilitation of Mkoi Spring

The Problem: Mkoi Spring is allocated in Pasua for villagers’ domestic uses such as drinking water, cooking, and washing. The spring had been covered with iron sheeting that had rusted and been pierced, leading to dust and other dirty materials entering the water sources. This water pollution was not healthy for villagers and could lead to an eruption of diseases if it was not cleaned up.

The Solution: Kisa Scholars worked with villagers to replace the rusted, pierced sheeting with new sheeting that would prevent dust and dirty materials from entering the water source. Scholars also taught villagers how to properly care for the new cover to ensure that the environment around the spring was cared for in the future.

Project #25: Tarakea Secondary School – Group 1

Project Title & Location: Establishment of Solar System at Tarakea Secondary

The Problem: The school often experiences electrical outages that have taken place at extremely inopportune times, such as during national exams. Power outages have been a big distraction to students and have negatively impacted exam performance.

The Solution: By working to install solar technology, power shortages are no longer an issue during the school day. And, this renewable energy source now enables students to study during the night time in their school rooms with suitable solar lighting.

Project #26: Tarakea Secondary School – Group 2

Project Title & Location: Create Awareness on Gender-Based Violence (GBV) at Urauri Primary School in Kilimanjaro

The Problem: There is a high rate of GBV in the Kilimanjaro Region, specifically in Rombo District. Most of the victims of this violence are young children.

The Solution: Kisa Scholars provided GBV education at Urauri Primary School for students in Standard 1-7. Students now know how to recognize this violence and know where and how to report it if they are abused. In addition, Kisa Scholars selected a teacher to continue to educate and support students in reporting GBV at the school. Kisa Scholars also created a post box where students can leave concerns or issues regarding GBV, which will help young scholars report issues that they are not comfortable reporting in person.

Project #27: Weruweru Secondary School – Group 1

Project Title & Location: Plumbing of Toilets at Korongoni Primary School

The Problem: There was no water in the toilets at this school, even though 500 girls were using them. This was causing health issues like urinary tract infections.

The Solution: Kisa Scholars secured support to provide proper plumbing to the toilets, making them safer to use for both girls and for boys.

Project #28: Weruweru Secondary School – Group 3

Project Title & Location: Renovations of Washrooms at Weruweru Secondary School.

The Problem: Washrooms at the school are not in good condition. Students’ timetables were being impacted by the poor washroom quality, as was their health, as students were making trips to the hospital to get treatment for diseases and infections being caused by the poor washrooms.

The Solution: Kisa Scholars worked with experts to repair the flashing system, which will help to minimize and prevent bad smells by ensuring proper water supply and taps, now keeping more than 300 students healthy.

Project #29: Maasae Girls School – Group 1

Project Title & Location: Sustainable Products at Kisongo-Duka Bovu at Shalom Orphanage Centre

The Problem: Those who live at this center are dependent on aid and grow up continuing to be dependent on aid from others rather than making a living to support themselves.

The Solution: Kisa Scholars taught young people how to earn an income with sustainable products, such as reusable pads and liquid soap.

Project #30: Maasae Girls – Group 2

Project Title & Location: Health Education at Sinoni Primary School in Monduli

The Problem: Teenagers in this community are making bad decisions and having sex at an early age, which results in pregnancy that causes school dropouts.

The Solution: Kisa Scholars worked with experts to teach younger students in Standard Levels 5, 6, and 7 how to be in healthy relationships that do not involve having sex. They taught students about making good decisions, delaying sex, and focusing on education.

Project #31: Mlangarini Secondary School – Group 1

Project Title & Location: Construction of Tap Floor and Putting Cork to the Tap at Mlangarini Primary School

The Problem: After collecting water, students were putting a rock into the tap in order to minimize water flow, but this created excess water runoff and waste, in addition to creating a muddy and slippery, unsafe area around the tap.

The Solution: Kisa Scholars constructed a cemented water floor to remove incidence of mud They also put a cork in the tap to ensure that the tap could shut off completely and not waste water. Now the tap is safer to use.

Project #32: Mlangarini Secondary School – Group 2

Project Title & Location: Thorn Tree Planting to Reduce School Ground Interference at Mlangarini Secondary School

The Problem: There are no boundaries around the school and villagers were entering the school grounds, especially at night, making students feel unsafe. In addition, students were leaving the school to go to town, when they should not.

The Solution: Kisa Scholars planted thorn trees to separate school dormitory boundaries from the village. This prevented students from leaving school grounds, and has prevented villagers from entering the grounds, leading to more security and peace of mind.

Project #33: Mlangarini Secondary School – Group 3

Project Title & Location: Notice Board at Mlangarini Secondary School

The Problem: Students have had difficulty accessing important information and announcements here for many years.

The Solution: Kisa Scholars created a notice board for the school to help students, parents, and staff stay updated on various school news and announcements.

Project #34: Mringa Secondary School – Group 1

Project Title & Location: Improved Waste Disposal at Mringa Primary School

The Problem: The local primary school was experiencing poor waste disposal around campus, causing environmental pollution and potential for disease outbreak.

The Solution: Kisa Scholars cleaned the school environment and set it up for future success, adding dustbins and instructional posters to direct people where to place specific waste items.

Project #35: Mringa Secondary School – Group 2

Project Title & Location: Sanitation Improvements at Ngaramtoni Market

The Problem: The market has been viewed as a dirty place, with poor management of waste throughout the market area.

The Solution: Kisa Scholars worked with community leaders and market workers to educate them about why the market should be kept clean. They also worked together to clean the market environment, providing dustbins and other tools to help keep the area more clean and sanitary for all. They also created inspirational banners to remind workers to keep the market clean.

Project #36: Mringa Secondary School – Group 3

Project Title & Location: Reducing early pregnancy and dropouts at Kiranyi Secondary School in Sakina, TZ

The Problem: This school was experiencing increases in young girls that were becoming pregnant and dropping out of school.

The Solution: Kisa Scholars worked with school officials to develop a sensitization campaign that would help girls understand how to avoid becoming pregnant. They taught lessons about how girls can stand up for themselves and for their futures, and educated girls about what they stood to lose if they became pregnant – and what they stood to gain if they didn’t. They also created and hung posters in the school to remind girls of the messages they shared at the sessions.

Project #37: Mringa Secondary School – Group 4

Project Title & Location: Providing Education & Restoring Hope Among Drug Adicts at Ngaramtoni Sober House

The Problem: Residents of this treatment center were losing hope about their futures.

The Solution: Kisa Scholars visited residents to share lessons about how to move forward in positive ways once they left the center. Girls shared motivational words, inspired residents to continue talking about their challenges with people who could help, and shared how interacting in the environment, planting trees or growing and eating their own food, could help them maintain a positive outlook.

Project #38: Irkisongo Secondary School – Group 1

Project Title & Location: English Tutoring at Irkisongo Secondary School

The Problem: Students in the school were struggling academically because they were failing to understand the English language, which is the main teaching language in Tanzanian secondary schools.

The Solution: Kisa Scholars established English language clubs, gave motivational morning speeches in English, placed reminders to speak English on blocks around campus, and held an inter-school competition to motivate English language speaking.

Project #39: Irkisongo Secondary School – Group 2

Project Title & Location: Clothesline Installation at Irkisongo Secondary School

The Problem: There are no clotheslines at the school for students to dry their clothes, so students were drying them in the grass. This was leading to skin rashes, infections, and stolen clothing.

The Solution: Kisa Scholars installed clothes lines at the school for all students to use. Now clothes are hung safely at a distance off the ground, and are more visible, reducing theft.

Project #40: Arusha Girls Secondary School – Group 1

Project Title & Location: Reducing Deforestation at Muklat Secondary School in Ngaramtoni, TZ

The Problem: In and around Muklat Secondary School, trees were being cut down for both school and villagers’ personal use, for firewood and construction projects. This was damaging to the environment and also negative for students, who could no longer enjoy trees or the shade they provided for studying.

The Solution: Kisa Scholars collaborated with another extracurricular club to give presentations at the school and surrounding community about the effects of destroying fruit and shade trees. Together, they worked to raise awareness about negative effects of deforestation, and then planted trees at the school to replace those that had been lost. Each villager who helped received two trees to plant at home, benefiting the school and the larger society.

Project #41: Arusha Girls Secondary School – Group 2

Project Title & Location: Planting Gardens to Improve Nutrition at Matonyok Orphanage Center in Olasiti

The Problem: Food provided to the orphanage was unbalanced and the orphanage did not have their own gardens to provide healthy food for students, who were suffering nutritionally.

The Solution: Kisa Scholars dug and planted a vegetable garden at the school so student meals could be supplemented with healthier foods. Scholars also made a plan for the garden to be supervised by the school’s headmaster and gardener.

Project #42: Arusha Secondary School – Group 1

Project Title & Location: Reusable Pads to Improve School Attendance During Menstruation at Ngarenaro Secondary School

The Problem: Students at this secondary school were not attending school when on their periods, because they did not know how to manage their bodily hygiene.

The Solution: Kisa Scholars held workshops to help girls understand how to make reusable sanitary pads that would help them better care for their personal hygiene during their periods. Several workshops were held, holding 50 students each in Forms 1-4. Kisa Scholars also established clubs at the school and suggested topics that would be taught each week about menstrual health, under supervision of the health teacher on campus.

Project #43: Longido Secondary School – Group 1

Project Title & Location: Mental & Bodily Health at Tumaini Dormitory at Longido Secondary School

The Problem: Students in the dormitory were getting sick from disease and insects that had infiltrated the sleeping area, because the dormitory was very dirty and not kept up well by students.

The Solution: Kisa Scholars educated students about the importance of keeping their living environment clean. They showed girls how to burn their used pads and how to properly clean their living space. To support the students’ mental health, they also planted shade trees so students would have a relaxation space by their dorm. They also established a club that would meet regularly to ensure these positive changes would be maintained.

Project #44: Longido Secondary School – Group 2

Project Title & Location: Reducing Substance Abuse at Longido Secondary School

The Problem: An increasing number of students were being suspended at the school due to drug abuse and early pregnancies.

The Solution: Kisa Scholars held educational sessions for Form 2, 3, and 4 students to teach them about forming healthy relationships, the negative effects of drug use, and to teach about the importance of focusing on their education. Kisa Scholars also created clubs to operate weekly under teacher supervision that will address topics like forming good study habits, understanding their own bodily growth, childhood pregnancies, and drug abuse.

Project #45: Longido Secondary School – Group 3

Project Title & Location: Promoting Reusable Pad Use at Longido Secondary School

The Problem: Students experiencing their period were not comfortable attending school, and were thus missing classes and increasingly at risk of dropping out.

The Solution: Kisa Scholars shared health hygiene education with their peers, teaching them how to make reusable pads as well as sharing tips for managing their menstrual cycles. They also formed a new school club called Wadada Jasiri Club (“Brave Sisters” Club) that would be under the supervision of the school liaison that works with Kisa Project.

Project #46: (School Name Withheld) – Group 2

Project Title & Location: Upcycling & Other Economic Opportunities for Young Women at The Faraja Center at Siara-Mshono

The Problem: Young women in the community are bearing children at a young age and becoming single mothers that lack education and opportunities to earn an income.

The Solution: Kisa Scholars worked with The Faraja Center to teach young women ways of utilizing available resources – even those that look insignificant – that can be turned into useful products (e.g. upcycling).

Project #47: (School Name Withheld) – Group 3

Project Title & Location: Teaching Children’s Rights at the Children Retention House at Samunge

The Problem: For a number of reasons, children are under retention at this center. Many are not aware of their rights. Many have lost hope and do not understand how to create a future for themselves.

The Solution: Kisa Scholars held sessions with children to help them understand their rights. They provided tips for mental health and well-being and shared advice and encouragement for their future lives. They helped children see how they could be good citizens in the future.
