I have been teaching reading, writing and counting to adults for more than 10 years now. This job has thought me a lot. Meeting people and listening to their daily struggle changes you. I am happy to see how the lives of people I teach are transformed when they learn how to read . I started to do this job as a volunteer. I was lucky when they started to pay me. I am able to pay for my son’s school fees and for my daughter tailoring courses. I am grateful to have a job but life is getting more expensive and I really I wish I could get a salary raise. Like now I have a problem , my daughter needs glasses but I am not able to afford them.
