Teacher Training

Teacher Training



Without sufficient resources and training, teachers can struggle to nurture their students. Empower a teacher with training and support so that they can unlock the potential of their students and create confident communities.

How your gift helps

Training and resourcing of teachers plus learning opportunities for students – it all adds up to more resilient communities in places where poverty can hamper access to education.

Mr Ghansham was trained as a teacher through a project run by Tearfund’s partner the Diocese of Hyderabad. “I changed my life through the different types of training I received … I learnt so many things,” he says.

Now, his pupils in a remote village in Pakistan’s Sindh province are accessing education and all the potential it offers. One of them shared: “I love to come to school and read, and write my homework.”
