Teacher Training

Teacher Training



Without sufficient resources and training, teachers can struggle to nurture their students. With this gift, you’ll help 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

This Useful Gift celebrates a real story of transformation that represents education projects run by Tearfund’s partners around the world. By purchasing this gift you’ll make a valuable contribution to this work.

In northern Laos, Tearfund’s partner World Renew Laos is working to improve children’s access to education. Teachers are trained in using creative teaching methods with a focus on promoting numeracy and language skills, and relating learning to their ethnic culture and context.

Teacher Ms Sengvilay (pictured) says she can see the difference schooling makes to her students: “They will have a bigger picture, they will have a vision, and their livelihood, the way they live their life, will be different...”.
