When I was a kid I used to have a love or hate relationship with school. The highs were usually better than the lows. Then comes Covid-19. The virus snuck in like a bad guy from Scooby Doo,or the Power Rangers. Suddenly going to school was no longer safe unless the good guys could unmask the villain and rid the world of it’s reign of terror. Children found themselves staying at home. The privileged few were been home schooled, and I’m not just talking about the world. Zambia was no exception. The biggest disruption Covid has caused was how it has affected the school going child of Africa, and Zambia. Sure you’ve probably got kids who are excited that they get to stay home and play, but there’s still the kids who think “School is Cool”. It’s also very important. This is where Khutenga,a retailer I discovered,comes in.
Government Prevention Measures:
The good news is that the Zambian government has been vigilant with ensuring that schools are safe for our kids when they return to class. Many classrooms across the country have been disinfected and hand sanitizers distributed. Going to school should be safe for our much eager bundles of joy,so they right stationery is obviously required.
