“When you build the teachers, the teachers use the materials for the children, then you have built a country, you have built a nation”
-Mamusu Tarawalie, Head Teacher at Education for All, Sierra Leone, after a literacy workshop in October.
In October, we partnered with The Learning Foundation to conduct a teacher training literacy workshop at Mamusu’s school, Education for All. The teachers were so eager to learn and continue to be excited about the songs, Bob books, letter cards, and teaching techniques they learned at the workshop. When our team stopped by the school a couple weeks after the training, one of the teachers was outside singing one of the letter sound songs from the workshop with her students! Equipping teachers truly is empowering children with education and building a nation.
