Kenyan Students Teach Canadian Students about the Mau Mau Revolution

A group of Kenyan students from Tigithi Secondary and Loise Girls School used technology to help their Canadian sister school classmates understand the Mau Mau Rebellion that took place in Kenya between 1952 and 1960.

Social studies teacher, Mr. Paul Chaffee, at Heritage Woods secondary school, was teaching the English, French and American revolutions to his grade 9 students. When the Coquitlam students learned that Kenya had also experienced a revolution, they decided to go straight to the source.

Kenyan students, Banice Mwangi, George Gitonga, Ketty Kendi, Ian Nino, Brian Juma and Sarnaver Mwende took some time during their school holidays in December to share their historical knowledge of the Mau Mau Uprising with the students at Heritage Woods.
