“It’s amazing to see how both the students and the teacher were motivated despite the few available resources like textbooks and the bigger class size!”
– Emmanuel Niyirora, Teachers Union.
“It’s impressive to see how multipliers [teachers trained by Wellspring] can empower their fellow teachers by sharing even the little that they have. It was amazing to see how values are integrated in the lesson.”
– Catherine Mercy, Save the Children Rwanda.
This week, the Wellspring team in Rwanda had the opportunity to share how our work in one local school is impacting teachers and students alike, through a study visit. This event was organised for a group of people who form part of the Rwanda Education NGOs Coordination Platform (RENCP) – a group that fosters collaboration & encourages experience sharing among organisations working in Rwanda’s education sector.
The Study Visit allowed participants to see the impact of Wellspring’s work in Kinyinya Groupe Scolaire, one of the K-12 schools being equipped through our School Development Program. They had the opportunity to participate in some lesson observation sessions, and to share in a catch-up meeting where best practices and perspectives were shared. Perhaps most meaningfully, they heard from teachers at Kinyinya about how Wellspring’s School Development Program has helped them overcome the serious challenges they face in their profession.
