Just now working in Tanzania on teacher development and School Readiness. Particularly excited as we have trained 3000 Community Teaching Assistants who are now preparing children who have had no access to education to enter standard 1 (though we are receiving children as old as 11 years old! ) Very exciting and enriching.
Initial assessments indicate that children are better prepared to survive and progress at standard 1 in just 16 weeks than those children who have had one year or more in a pre-primary class. We have got something right! More than 300,000 children have benefitted who would not have had access to education as they live too far away from the nearest school.
School Readiness -not school readness -sorry!
Interests -apart from education in its broadest sense –photography and music -check out
