Some time ago we left Best of HR – Berufebilder.de® a report on the Massai Edwin Kisuto which regards education as the key to success. This was now printed in a high school textbook. We're glad.
From the blog into the textbook
The contribution A Maasai tells of life between tradition and modernity: education as the key to success appeared on 17. June 2013 on Best of HR – Berufebilder.de® as a result of a research trip to Kenya.
An excerpt from this report has now appeared in the textbook TERRA Geography 2 High School Lower Saxony of Klett-Verlag on page 55.

The following text was printed in the textbook TERRA Geography - here first the text, then the book excerpt as picture: “One day men came to my village. You said every family must send a child to school. I didn't want to, but I had to. It was a long way to school, I was gone all day. At some point I understood that I could learn something in school and I became a very good student because I wanted to achieve something. I then got a scholarship to high school in Nairobi. I had to cough all the time there because the air was so bad. And what shocked me most was the soft mattresses. Even today I prefer to sleep on the fur beds in the village. But I have a cell phone now, one email-Address and a driver's license. I don't tell my parents what the modern world looks like. They shouldn't think they are bad. "
