Teacher Training Makes the Difference

By Angie Roberts | Executive Director

Making sure girls are attending school and actually learning involves many different things.  The Alliance starts by working with a village to create a Village Education Council.  Council members determine the goals of the village and are encouraged by Alliance staff to recognize the value in all children receiving a quality education.

The Alliance partners with villages to make sure a school is in close proximity to the village and that is has a latrine (which definitely increases the percentage of girls who attend).  

This past month the Alliance focused on two other important factors: Handwashing buckets and teacher training.

 

83 handwashing buckets were distributed to our 11 schools.  Teachers and students were trained on the importance of hand washing in preventing disease and infection.  The more you wash your hands, the healthier you will be and the less school you will miss!

We also had 55 teachers participate in teacher training during late October and November.  The trainings were on fundamentals of math and how to teach French reading and writing.  During the month of December teachers were also trained in Bambara, the native language of Mali.  

For our students to achieve academic success we know we must invest in quality teachers and many other little things like handwashing buckets so thank you for all your support!  It definitely takes a village to send a girl to school!
