Kenyan schools turned into chicken coops as a way to make money by struggling teachers. They resorted to that as a way of making money through all possible ways after studies were called off until January.
The hardest hit are private schools since the outbreak. Over 300,000 staff members are on unpaid leave until classes are resumed.
One teacher named Maina is raising a different flock altogether in the empty classrooms due to the shattered economy. Blackboards are what she uses as her books of records to keep her notes on her birds. Deworming dates and feeding data replaced the manila papers displaying the digestive system on the walls of the classrooms.
Other teachers also ventured in other businesses to try and cope up with the periodic unemployment.
“I hope even my teachers are still doing something because life must continue,’’ she said.
The closure of Kenyan schools started in March and government schools are in a slightly better position. The government of Kenya is paying some salaries for teachers and other staff members. The nation only worries about the spirits of the teachers.
Peter Ndoro, the CEO of Kenya’s Private School’s Association hopes the teachers will have the morale to come back and teach at the end of the pandemic.
