Visiting Schools In Dakar

On our last day in Dakar we visited schools. One of the schools was the IQRA Bilingual Academy (iqraba.org) whose mission is to produce students with superior academic backgrounds, strong Islamic moral character, and a strong sense of social responsibility. Uniforms were primarily red, black, and brown – with boys wearing polo-style shirts and slacks and girls wearing hijab of the same colors.

During our visit, FMA students and staff had the opportunity to sit in on classes, take recess, and participate in collaborative activities with the IQRA students. Our students discovered that although separated by an ocean, they and their new friends (pictured) studied similar things and shared similar experiences in school. At the end of our visit FMA and IQRA students and staff feverishly exchanged contact information so they could stay in touch.
