Many women work in small pre-schools or local schools but usually they don’t meet the qualifications required to formally train as a teacher or the funds to afford a course.

At Phakamisa [WDR partner], our training is quite basic but we have noticed that in many schools, the trained women go to, the principal notices they are teaching better than the actual qualified teachers. It’s satisfying when you a woman says “Ah, I understand now”.
