Sri Lanka: Teach up
Teachers play a critical role in shaping the future of the next generation and when teachers are motivated, professionally trained and well supported, they transform their communities. However, this is not the case in many fragile places. TeachUP is an effort to help teachers living in places where it is hardest to be a teacher. TOUCH International mobilizes teachers / educators in Singapore to take action – to impart skills, inspire and encourage the teachers in the less developed areas through the teaching and sharing of experiences. Since TeachUP has begun in 2012, more than 300 Sri Lankan teachers have benefitted from this programme. Your contribution will enable TOUCH International to continue mobilising volunteers to empower the Sri Lankan teachers to produce talents and professionals in the country.
