There is a chronic shortage of government employed teachers in our partner schools, in common with many public schools across Kenya, particularly those in isolated rural areas. Similarly many of them are not equipped with adequate skills and knowledge due to a lack of training and development opportunities.


By employing extra teachers (as well as constructing sufficient classrooms) we help to reduce class numbers to low and manageable levels. We have plans to fund training seminars for teachers both at our partner schools and others in the region, to provide teachers with the opportunity to learn and develop skills which they can bring to the classroom.
