There’s an old saying that says something to the effect of, “If you really love something, then you want everyone you love to have it too.” For 11-year-old Mustapha Mugathir, that “something” is learning. Mustapha has four siblings and attends Junior Secondary School 1 at Premier Grammar School. He loves to learn, but Mustapha’s favorite part is sharing and teaching the new skills he acquires from school. Mustapha dreams of becoming a teacher one day. Because of a classroom built by Coafrica, each day gives him the education he needs to change the world as a teacher, one student at a time.

Coafrica is centered around students like Mustapha–it’s why we do what we do. Let’s get to know Mustapha a little better.
