Like our readers, we love learning how our friends around the world spend their free time and we appreciate them giving us new ideas as we spend time at home. We find that now more than ever we are reminded that we are more alike than we are different and we are positive that we will get through this challenging time together, as a global community!
Below are this week’s activities for our friends and family around the world. As you move through these activities please share photos and videos using the hashtag #TFEathome. You can also email them to us (email@example.com
We hope this will provide you and your loved ones with some fun learning experiences during this unprecedented time. We are thinking of all of you and are grateful for each and every one of you!
Stay healthy and stay positive!

We visited these young women last May and are so excited to share their work with you. Our third featured author is Vallary, with Delicious Food in Kenya. If any of our readers would like to create books about their life, our friends at Akili would LOVE to see them!
Meet the Author
Vallary is 13 years old and loves reading and science. She said their school uniforms make them look neat and smart and make their school shine. Vallary says school is important if you want to be someone in the future, and she would like to be a teacher! Thank you for sharing your book with us Vallary!
Book Recommendation for Teens and Adults::
Continuing with our book recommendations, this week’s pick is ‘The Girl With the Louding Voice’ by Abi Dare. We both just read it and fell in love with the main character, fierce and fearless Adunni. The book details the countless obstacles fourteen year old Adunni encounters in her journey to receive an education in Nigeria. It illustrates what many of us take for granted – the ability to so easily receive a primary and secondary education. Order Amazon’s ‘Best Book of February’ today, we think you too will love it! Please note, some content is for mature audiences.
Family Activity: back in the kitchen!
Our friends from Dignitas gave us more of their favorite recipes and this week we want to highlight OUR favorite Kenyan treat – chapatis! We love having chapatis on our visits and now we are excited to attempt them ourselves! Grace, the female powerhouse behind Halisi Designs, producer of the majority of our uniforms in Kenya, provided us with this easy to follow YouTube video recipe by Chef Raphael. Give it a try and let us know what you think!
