In a crammed room of about 120 students at an all-boys school in Bangui, Central African Republic, Mr Basile teaches lessons of tolerance and non-violence.
​He shows a picture of Muslim children being bullied by Christians and vice versa and asks the class: “Is this right or wrong?” The boys say “It’s wrong!” in unison.
​Mr Basile came to Bangui during the conflict in CAR; he and his family had to flee violence in his home town in 2012. After settling here he was able to continue his work as a primary school teacher. Students in his class range from age 11 to 14.
