Script Details

Though it may not look like it, these children in Morogoro, Tanzania are hard at work learning. This, specifically, is a math lesson. For them, games and other forms of play are an essential part of learning.

In 2013, the Government of Tanzania reinforced its commitment to providing better education by making primary school free for all children. It was a landmark decision, which removed a significant barrier to education for thousands of children…

Despite the obvious benefits and opportunities of this decision, there are still many challenges. Added to inconsistent quality of education, irregular attendance, and a lack of qualified teachers, crowded classrooms are now also straining the limited capacities of many schools. There are just too many children and not enough space, teachers, or resources. This overcrowding can lead to a negative classroom climate and children falling behind.

At the Fulwe Primary School in Morogoro, the staff has adopted a novel approach to dealing with this challenge: play.


The setting in this classroom in the East African country of Tanzania might look quite different to many around the world, but the style of teaching should be quite familiar. It’s what is often called the “chalk and talk” approach to education. The teacher speaks, the children are expected to listen.

But there is actually something quite different happening in this school in Tanzania.

All of the teachers at the Fulwe Primary School in Morogoro have been trained to use play to enhance their students’ learning.

Abeid Lihawa has been a teacher for 15 years. He is the most recent teacher to participate in this training.
