Teacher Training

Teacher Training



Teachers can make all the difference in helping children overcome barriers and gain an education. This gift trains teachers to become passionate and effective educators, as they help unlock the amazing God-given potential in their students.

How your gift helps

In a classroom in a remote village of northern Laos, Mrs Dee’s students lean forward eagerly as she reads a story. “The great joy of teaching is to see the kids learn – especially in these communities where there has been so little opportunity for education,” Mrs Dee shares. She’s passionate about teaching, and always looks for ways to serve the needs of her students – even learning their local language! TEAR’s partner World Renew Laos provides basic education support, including upskilling teachers like Mrs Dee to improve education outcomes for marginalised children.
