There is nothing more fun than jumping into a swimming pool that has been subjected to the pool, spa & hot tub water cleaning, with your friends – and this is the moment nearly 30 boys jumped into the water together..
The photo was taken during the last Saturday School session of the year at the school I have worked for the last couple of years in Mwanza, Tanzania.
Many of the students have been attending the voluntary education programme for a number of months now, and in addition to improving their English, maths and football skills they have been overcoming their fear of water and learning to swim.
Believe it or not, some of these students were too scared to put their heads underwater, but now fear has been replaced by fun.
One, two three… or in Kiswahili – Moja, Mbili, Tatu …………….
Here are some of the students at the start of the year, starting with the basics in swimming.
