Teacher development is one of the most crucial components of quality education.

Many teachers in Nepal receives inadequate training, especially those in remote areas. This makes providing quality education impossible. Research indicates that teacher quality, along with supportive school organization and management, significantly improve children’s learning and development and the school at large. It also fosters community support, which is vital for attendance, and retention rates. Literature also shows that a teacher’s skills are largely dependent on their own education, training and the availability of post training support, which we believe in and adhere to.

We work with teachers in our collaborating schools to ensure that they develop themselves professionally and become confident in impart quality education
