kenyan great grandma goes to first grade-BBCVideo

A 90-year-old Kenyan woman who goes to class with six of her great-great-grandchildren is believed to be the oldest primary school pupil in the world, reports the BBC

After serving her village as a midwife for the last 65 years she decided to join the young children, don a school uniform, and learn to read and write.

She also aims to inspire the older kids: “I see children who are lost, children who are without fathers, just going round and round, hopeless. I want to inspire them to go to school.”
