Across the river and on to the depth of the forest, also it takes a long walk until you can get to a village of the Sakai people. Mariaty just finished her Kindergarten Teacher’s Training and sent out to teach the children there and live among the people. Now there are 35 children from different ages group. She divides the children based on their age group so that she can teach them accordingly, starting at kindergarten age, a group of 6 to 8, and a group of 9 to 11 years old.
||Mariaty teaches them many things, how to have clean body and clothes, teach them to read, write and count, and character building. A year later the children showed significant changes. The children are now cleaner, healthier,
have knowledge, able to read & write and do a simple math.
Even the families are no longer live in nomadic lifestyle, thanks to the farming knowledge taught by Mariaty. The people can now take care of their farming and get settled in.
