Growing Impact of Teacher Leaders

Dear Friends and partners,

Let me thank you all for being there, offering support both moral and financial to help us serve children better. This stilll remains our drive for the year 2019. 

We are in the third month of the year and still seeing teachers committed to nurturing, protecting and giving children a firm foundation.

The following are excerpts of what the teachers have been doing with the limited resources with the children: Let's call them Continuing Change Stories

Growing George*

George is in class 5, Grade 5 equivalent at Acres of Mercy Learning Centre. He is one of those energetic, constantly-buzzzing around children. You know, the ones we call hyperactive. His teachers, through constantly being encouraged, counselled, trained have been able to develoop the patience and grace to say the following about him. "George has matured, and now even asks for permission to go out." For George this is a remarkable show of growth and maturing. As his teacher Madam Serah puts it, "Previously he would just walk out of class to go out to play. He now takes coorrection positively. You can see the change in his school work. Whereas he used to do all his subjects in one exercise book, though he had one for each subject, he now is better organized, and does each subject in its own notebook. He even takes notes, something he previously struggled wiith. George is learning everyday to follow the school routine and is less combative with his fellow classmates.

Asked what she and the other teachers did to inspire this change, Md. Serah has this to say. "Teacher counselling as well as advising has greatly contributed to the change."

This is remarkable in a country where such students experience countless sessions of corporal punishment to "straighten" students out. 

Our teachers have embraced alternative routes to discipline and the fruits are evident. They are  realizing the benefits of a non-combativ, safe, learning environment for children. Even though there are challenges and iit takes extra work, our staff arre willing to work on these.

Your support is needed to ensure we do not lose these committed teachers.  Let's bring in friends on board, re-commit or consider giving recurrently so we can still reach children no matter their background because every child deserves an education, quality education. The investments we make in their support would have far reaching ripple effects into the future.

Thank you for making it happen, and let's make it happen again and again for the 125 children we currently serve by supporting teachers to impacct children in class and out of class, through sports and club activities.
