Coffee in Children's Perspectives

As I was doing CBB survey on the coffee farm belong to these children's grandfather, all these 4 children approached me
looked at my eyes
smiled at me
questioned me
and argued me:

“Sir, what are you doing here in our grandfather’s coffee farm?”
“What  do you count it for?"
“Why does it happen?”
“Where did those beetles come from?”
“How did it reach our village?” 
"Will those beetles make my father poorer?"
"Sir, will you help our grandfather and father to overcome this problem?"
(I turned around because of tears in my eyes)

I admired these children because I know the wisdom : 
"Questioning is the mother of knowledge and science".

Let the children question !
Listen to the children !
Answer the children !
Prepare the children's future !

Children are the future of the world. 
Kind regards,

Dr. Sabam Malau
