Nyerere: Education for Liberation

Tomorow is 10 years since Mwalimu’s body died. His ideas and philosophy lives. Let honor him by celebrating his life and thinking on what he used to stand upon.

This is part of speech during Dag Hammarskjold Dar Es Salaam, 2oth  May 1974, from Nyerere on Education Vol.I

Education has to liberate the African from the mentality of slavery and colonialism by making him aware of himself as an equaly member of human race, with rights and duties of his humanity. It has to liberate him from the habit of submitting to circumstances which reduce his dignity as if they were immutable.And it has to liberate him from the shackles of techinical ignorance so that he can make and use the tools of organization and creation for development of himself and his fellow man”
Wishing Nice Celebration on Mwalimu’s Life
