Help Send 900 Girls to School in Ouelessebougou!

Increase in Girl Education & Teacher Training

This past year, 534 girls enrolled in Alliance schools - more than ever before! Roughly one-third of all Alliance students are female - an indication of social change and a shift of village values toward gender equity in education. With your help, the Alliance hopes to continue to further educational opportunities for girls. The quality of teacher training has also improved this past year. Training in 2006 focused on educating our native teachers on interactive learning skills, gender equity and best teaching practices. The Alliance also encourages teachers to initiate parent-teacher relationships to nurture improved quality of education and family support.

A 2006 education expedition focused on enhancing elementary level curriculums in mathematics, including hands-on learning and participation in the classrooms.
