The Impact of Teacher Training

Since its beginning, AIL has taken great pains to train our teachers to instruct students using techniques which help the students truly understand their subject instead of just learning by rote. When you speak to the students of these teachers, you can hear that this training is working. Maisam is a 13 year old student at a high school near one of AIL’s rural centers. In addition to her regular school schedule, she is attending the center’s classes in English and Math. Maisam says, “I began taking classes and because of my teacher’s efforts I can now solve very difficult questions and help my friends, sisters and brothers. Before beginning classes at the center, I didn’t know even one word of English. Now I can speak English and it is all due to the efforts of my teacher. I am very thankful to AIL and to my teachers.”

 

Thank you for your donations, which make the training of our wonderful teachers possible, and help create a brighter future for girls like Maisam!
