At Akili School, we believe in the power of women to transform the world. This is why all our teachers are female. We love seeing them empower the underprivileged girls we support through education. We want to retain and invest in them through continuous training to improve quality of instruction for our girls. Many grant givers do not fund salaries for teachers. But we believe we can pull our resources together and pay the dedicated women at Akili School better and give Akili girls the best!!
To provide quality education to Akili Girls, our teachers, who are all female, need to be well remunerated. These dedicated women strive to give our girls the best education they can with very limited resources and little pay in form of monthly stipends of $60 or less. Although many donors consider salaries operational costs that they dont fund, teachers are critical in ensuring quality education and hence a core program cost that should be funded to ensure that our girls get quality education.
We want to pay our teachers well. Being the women they are, we understand the ripple effect of paying them well to their households. They will support their families & educate their children. Akili School will reduce high turnover, build their capacity through continuous training and hence improve the quality of instruction for our girls. For $155 monthly, we can hire a qualified teacher for the school. For this amount, we can support 94 girls, admitting 15 more every year as the school expands
We believe the greatest asset we can give our community is a generation of educated women who will look after its future generation through planned-parenthood,healthy children and families and stable incomes that will ultimately enable them to fight and win the war against poverty.Quality education provided by qualified and well remunerated teachers and support staff is key to achieving this goal. Creating jobs for women as teachers and paying them well empowers them to support their families
