Aga Khan Girls School Dodoma, Tanzania, 1955

My Mum taught in the Aga Khan Girls School. In colonial Tanganyika schools were segregated by race: there were white only schools, schools for asian children (such as the Agakhan school) and schools for the African children. Very few African children went to school.

Here is a picture of the girls from the Agakhan School. My Mum is in the back row, fourth from the left.

My sister (second from left) and me (bottom right) are pictured on a picnic with some of the girls from the school. We were dropped off from a lorry in a remote dry river bed for the picnic. Unfortunately the lorry did not return when arranged and after it got dark we lit fires to keep away the hyenas while we waited till we were eventually picked up.

  1. School photograph shows Dodoma School. However, the large photograph shows Iringa brownies, girl guides and rangers group. (Photo taken in the back of the jamatkhana building). I recognize myself. Thanks
