Assadek, the director of Tamesna school suggested that the kids prepare a theatrical performance i.e. skit for the Festival. He decided on the subject of education for girls. The story is: A nomad father returns to his house to tell his wife he wants to enter their daughter Zeinabou in school. His wife complains: how can I send my only daughter away from the house everyday? I will miss her, I need her help with work…she and her husband have a big argument and a neighbor who is a parent of another girl in school overhears and comes in with the director of the school. They say—what is going on here? Don’t you know how valuable education is for girls? They can even become doctors or ministers in the government and go on to name the famous women in Niger. Finally the mama agrees.
