Ebu fikiria you spend millions taking your child to an International School and thereafter to Oxford University. The end result is a Bachelors degree in IT. Problem is, today we do have hundreds of IT specialists, doctors, lawyers, etc. What does that mean? Many professionals with zero opportunities, now if you as a parent happen to have a sister who works in the Presidents office who knows the permanent secretary in the Ministry of Finance and can get the child a job. That job will not exactly offer the financial freedom that will transform the child economically. But it can get the child a handsome salary and a loan in Barclays Bank. Though it cant get him his dream house or even finance, the life style of his generation even if he worked for two decades straight without touching his salary. Look at the world now, everything is expensive. That acre of land in your area today that cost a mere 5m 10years ago, today it is four times that much. Jamani hebu imagine if leo hii your baby is 10yrs how much that acre will cost when is 30 years old. Getting a job now is twice as competitive as it was 10 years ago. Fikiria how it will be 20 years from now, but most of todays parents havent caught on these changing dynamics of the world. In relation to the kind of education they are offering their children. Todays parent like our parents long ago, still excited about taking their children to the big name schools and wanting their babies to do the big sounding courses (which sometimes end up damaging their career and become frustrated in life). The parent dreams of seeing the child put on that weird looking wig that judges put on complete with the all black robe. Thats the sign of success and best gift a parent can give to child. And one will go to extra lengths to offer that, but is success nowadays only found in offices? Is money found behind these computers we keep tapping on daily? Is a sense of achievement found in doing the same thing in air conditioned office forever earning the same salary for years? Is that what you (as a parent) spent millions for in international schools, putting your child into an unseen vicious cycle of boring lifestyle? Send the child to international school but during the holidays, take him to the farm to help with the process of milking the cows right down (wacha pia achafuke also anyeshewe na mvua), to supplying it to customers and doing all the paper work involved. Let the child do it thrice a week, dont you think you would have offered him a more rounded approach to the world he will face in the future? If he fails to get a job as an accountant at Tanzania Revenue Authority (TRA), then he can always turn to the dairy farm without a hitch. If he does get a job in TRA and realizes he will be paid 3m per month, which he can actually get in a week, selling thousands of liters of milk, dont you think he will be better positioned to see the economic sense? Or what if you taught your daughter during the holiday season, how to run your estate right from collecting the rent from the numerous tenants you have, to supervising the renovations and penning warning letters to the stubborn tenants? Dont you think you would have offered her, another dimension to life that will come in so handy in case she doesnt get that human resource job she badly wants? The world has developed dramatically but our education hasnt. If you are a parent does your child have a wholesome education? Have a nice day guys.
