Teacher Aids for both our schools

Zahana
Zahana's school in Fiarenana

The cornerstone of participatory development is the ‘participatory’ part, or in more modern language the ‘buy in’ by the community, exemplified in the building of their school. This extends to buy-in on a local, hands-on community level, but also on the bigger, national level. 

In this train of thought we had very exciting news: A local NGO in Madagascar, with ties to Korea, has decided to hire and pay the salary of two teaching assistants for our schools for three days a week. This financial commitment generated in country is very reassuring for us that Zahana’s approach is taking root in Madagascar.  

While we had indeed been wondering how our teachers could cope with a teaching load of 50 to 70 students in one classroom every week, we had waited until the request for teaching assistants came from the community itself. Once the request was made, we were delighted to find local financial support for this endeavor. 

Now Zahana’s task will be to find, interview, hire and train the new teaching assistants. We hope to be able to combine this with a refresher teacher training in the village this summer. 

Best regards,

Ihanta and Markus
