Challenge

In Rwanda pupils have three years to learn English before all their subjects are taught using English. Many of the teachers we train struggle with English as a second language and so they lack the necessary knowledge and teaching methods to be able to provide a quality education to their pupils.

Solution

Our partner, Support to Primary Education Rwanda, delivers teaching and learning of English in government schools. There is no greater impact on more lives than teaching teachers English. With over 20 years' experience in Tanzania, we stand out in Rwanda as a very serious part of their development. The core of our work is teacher-to-teacher training, using our own highly instructive books with explanations and instructions in the teachers' native tongue of Kinyarwanda. Teachers Change Lives.

Long-Term Impact

Basic education is the key to any lasting development. A single well-trained teacher can lift hundreds of children out of poverty. This is the most important work we can do. To date we have improved the education of hundreds of primary school teachers and thousands of pupils. Education is the passport to a self-sustaining life.
