Education East Africa is improving primary education by training and supporting teachers, providing equipment and materials, and working with communities to assist government schools and pupils.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Children are leaving primary school with an insufficient education to equip them for further studies or future life. Particularly important is a sound knowledge of mathematics and of the English language as all further education is in English. Teachers lack subject knowledge and teaching methods, and a shortage of teaching materials to be able to provide a quality education. Only long-term work can bring lasting change, so that as many pupils as possible benefit from an improved education.
How will this project solve this problem?
In Tanzania we provide in-service training for teachers in 8 village schools in the teaching and learning of English and mathematics, and assist other schools with equipment and materials. In Rwanda our new project will help 4 schools with the teaching and learning of English. We provide seminars for the use of our materials and improved teaching methods, and classroom support to evaluate pupils' progress. We assist school teachers - the most valuable resource in the education system.
Potential Long Term Impact
Basic education is the key to any lasting development for rural communities, and that is what Education East Africa seeks to improve.
