Happy summer to all our of supporters!
There is much news about TIA to share. Thanks to a generous grant from the MacArthur Grant, we have been able to expand TIA and this summer there will be two separate TIA workshops taking place from June 23rd to July 5th. These workshops will be integrated with school-based workshops that will start happening right after the seminar. Adding these school-based workshops will centralize our teacher training program and allow the program to have a greater reach: impacting more schools, more teachers and more students.
The seminar will take place at Mwenge University College of Education in Moshi, Tanzania. Each year, these 100% Tanzanian led training seminars draw secondary-level teachers from across Tanzania who want to improve the quality of instruction in their own classrooms. The teachers work through case studies, which are designed to help them understand how to use active, participatory techniques in their lessons.
The MacArthur foundation selected organizations, like AfricAid, because they were “looking for fresh thinking about providing quality secondary education, so that every child has a chance at living a fulfilled life and contributing to his or her local community and our global society.”
We look forward to sharing with you in our next update, stories from these upcoming and powerful TIA workshops.
