School started in-person in Tanzania in January and our tutors have been busy identifying the new Standard One students who may need extra support from Toa as the year continues. We are currently in the process of individually testing each of the new students to determine which students will benefit from our pull-out program for personalized tutoring. We are assessing about 1200 kids from 11 schools this year.
Once we start our tutoring program for this year, we are excited to start our new snack program where all of our tutoring sessions will start with a snack to feed every student we support.
Meanwhile, we finished final testing for last year’s cohort, who are now in Standard Two. We want to measure their progress to ensure they will thrive in the regular classroom without Toa’s special support.
Toa knows that learning does not only happen at school so an important component of our programming is partnering with and engaging parents. All 11 partner schools held parent meetings with parents, Toa staff, and school teachers. Parents are our partners in learning!
One of Toa’s main values is partnerships and investment in our partner public schools. In this spirit, Toa provided training for the teachers at two of our primary schools about child sexual abuse. We know teachers empowered with this knowledge will increase their own confidence as well as empowering their students.
