Child sponsorship is widely advocated, but have you ever thought about teacher sponsorship? Or one step further: teacher trainer sponsorship?
Child sponsorship predominantly financially supports children to be able to attend school, but what happens inside the school? This year at READ for Life we have employed four Ugandan teacher trainers to work with local teachers to improve education in schools.
We would love to partner with you on our journey in improving education in northern Uganda and across the rest of the country. In fact, we can’t do this without you.
Together, we can train teachers in improved methods of teaching, particularly teaching reading and writing, and see children’s reading improve drastically. We will be giving children more opportunities for the future, not only will they be able to stay in school longer because they can ‘access’ the curriculum and understand what is being taught, but they will have more opportunities for jobs when leaving school. Who knows the children we will be empowering: they could be future teachers, lawyers, doctors, pastors or many more professionals.
Your influence will not be to support and help one child, but tens of thousands of children and it’s growing every day.
We would love people to donate $50 per month towards teacher salaries (and commit to a period of three years). Individuals or groups can combine together to make this happen.
If you would like to help sponsor a teacher, click on our donations page to find out how to give. Residents from Australia, the UK, US, New Zealand, and Europe can make tax deductible donations. We look forward to sharing this exciting journey with you.
