Deputy Head Teacher at The Tiffin Girls’ School in London

“The beauty of ‘Our Africa’ is that it shows children in the UK the similarities between their own lives and children living in Africa. As well as showing the obstacles that many young people face living in Africa, it essentially shows young people with similar mindsets, ambitions, hopes and interests. It is a great learning tool.”

Sam Wintle

Class Teacher (Year 3) at Ursula Taylor Lower School, Clapham, Beds:

"The children spent the whole lesson engrossed on the site and not once came up to tell me they'd finished or ask what to look at next, which normally happens when they're given a task on the computers."
