Challenge

There are 264 million young people without access to school, with few signs of progress in Africa. The latest Unesco figures shows the position up to 2018, reveal "virtually no progress" in recent years. The drive for access to teachers has been vital for improving the health, economy and stability of some of the world's poorest countries.The worst out-of-school rates are in sub-Saharan Africa, where 21% of primary-age children and 36% of young teenagers are missing out on school.

Solution

Rotary International clubs and the Rotary Clubs of Gambia have tasked education upliftment in Gambia and by creating a platform to deliver remote 'Teach the Teacher' English, Maths and Science but also Health Care and Skills education by utilising the skills of qualified UK teachers to teach Gambian teachers, one at a time, to enable them return to their villages to teach 'many at a time'.

Long-Term Impact

The UK Teaching Suite over time can also deliver to other African teachers by inspiring students to go into teaching but also to raise the skills of current teachers in Africa. The objective is to decrease the out-of-school rates where in sub-Saharan Africa, 21% of primary-age children and 36% of young teenagers are missing out on school. The UN figures show about 61 million children are missing primary education and wider access to education would radically reduce poverty and improve security.
