Situation

Low quality and unmotivated teachers result in low levels of engagement in the classroom. This results in high absenteeism at school because children don't see the value in investing in themselves and are not engaged in the classroom. Because there is not a positive environment there is low levels of empathy resulting in challenging behaviour & bullying. This adds to problem of motivating children to attend.

Solution

Phase 1: 150 teachers form Embu county, Kenya will be taken through Leadership for Life - a programme with a proven track record in giving people the mindsets, motivation and skills to flourish in teaching and in life. Phase 2: 15 teachers from 15 schools will be equipped to then impart these same principles to 10000 children by being trained to integrate the Lead Now programme into the school curriculum creating an increase in empathy, self worth and academic achievement
