On Tuesday morning the children in P3-P7 were out of classes in order to help with the maize harvest at the enterprise farm. Maize is harvested twice a year and the school children help to pick and husk the maize. Maize is ground into flour at a maize mill run by New Hope and is a staple food used for porridge and posho. For many children from the villages the meal they receive at school may be the only one of the day. The kids and I went to help and learned a little bit about what it means to be a farm worker here. The farm workers earn the equivalent of $1.50 for a days work. The labour provided by the school children not only teaches them the value of hard work but also helps to ensure that the harvest is gathered in.
