Jeannette Uwase is 12 years old. She studies at Gafunzo Primary School, in Ngoma District. She is the winner of this year’s Global United Nations World Food Program Children’s Art Competition.
She was excited and happy to win. She said that she is going to use the money she won (Frw 55,000) to buy school materials like an English- French dictionary, a mathematical set, exercise books, pens, drawing material and sports gear.
Her best subjects are Mathematics and French. During her free time, she loves to draw pictures of flowers and trees because she loves nature.
Education in art and image expressions plays an important role in children’s academic and social development. It develops children’s creative skills, helps children explore their imagination and it develops their attention to detail.
