Princess Evelyn Bright: Muslim Community in East Africa is Growing Rapidly
The World Muslim Communities Council (TWMCC), has organised, on Monday 22 May 2023, a virtual lecture by Princess Evelyn Bright, Founder of Levyn Africa Ltd, CEO of Levyn Academy’s
Social Economic’s Activist, and Member of the Global pan-African movement, Uganda, under the theme 'Community Empowerment under Religion, Culture, Education, and Governance'.
Princess Evelyn Bright said that education is one of the most essential aspects that must be taken into consideration and developed within Africa.
She added that today, children suffer from the loss of society's morals due to the acceleration of life and technological development; noting that the increase in the number of births is an obstacle for parents to provide a good education for their children.
The Founder of Levyn Africa Ltd explained that the Islamic community in East Africa is one of the largest communities in this region and is growing rapidly.
She indicated that raising the standards of the educational system within schools does not depend only on academic subjects, but also includes ethical topics; stressing that developing the education system within East African societies requires concerted efforts by government and community institutions.
Princess Evelyn Bright said that the father and mother inside the home have a significant role by helping develop their children on the academic and moral level; noting that China is an example to follow in developing children's education.
