Mobile Resource Teacher
Everyone needs support, including the local teachers. Our mobile resource teacher travels to a different town each day to support the training of teachers and parent engagement.
Travelling support for better teacher practice.
We have been funding a full-time mobile teacher since 2009. He is a qualified teacher and former principal who uses a donkey and cart to travel between five villages in the area. He spends one day a week in each of the villages, dividing his time between training the government-hired teachers and working with the parents to create Parent Councils. He also carries educational supplies in his cart such as notebooks, pencils and some sports equipment that he gives to schools as needed. In 2021 we are supporting 78 teachers by equipping them with the skills they need to educate children and providing ongoing support throughout the school year.
