teacher training

In many developing countries schools have limited teaching and learning resources – often bare walls, no schoolbooks and community members acting as teachers. We’re on a mission to equip children and teachers with the materials and training they need to flourish in the classroom.

The core of our support involves the use of low-cost, solar-powered tablets for both teachers and students – loaded with entire primary school curricula in local languages. The tablets act as a solution to schoolbooks that date and damage quickly.

We know that technology alone is not the answer – a key focus of our work is teacher-training sessions and the development of professional support networks. To us teachers are agents of change – and we know that one well-trained teacher can change the lives of many.

For that reason, we focus on training teachers in practical teaching methods alongside leadership, communication, collaboration, creativity and critical thinking – empowering them in the classroom to ultimately become the agents of change their students need.
