Teacher training is currently, almost exclusively, non-existent in Tanzania, despite the fact it is commonplace for class sizes of up to 80. This summer I am heading out to volunteer in Njombe in rural Tanzania as part of a group of 20 qualified teachers. Our goal is to deliver a teacher training course called the 'Limited Resources Teach Training' (LRTT) to over 150 local teachers which will have a direct impact on the education of over 15,000 children both in Primary and Secondary education in Tanzania. Hopefully the following puts this into context:

£20 - the cost of workshops for one local teacher attending an LRTT course. With an average class of 65 students over ten years, that's just 2.5p per student for a better education and better life outcome.

I am so excited to be a part of such a worthwhile cause and hope if you are reading this, you share this excitement and donate what you can. One final thing that I feel is also important, is to share with you the costs involved, so that you can be assured your donation is going where it matters the most.

The cost of the LRTT program to each participant is £1250. A portion of this covers our basic cost of living (accommodation, food and transport) whilst in Tanzania. I have therefore reduced my fundraising target by £500 so that donations made go solely toward the costs associated with delivering the course itself:

  • transport for local teachers to and from the conferences
  • hire of the building for conferences
  • compensatory pay toward local teachers in lieu of their teaching wage during conference days (who otherwise would not be able to afford the loss of income by attending)
  • living expenses for local teachers whilst attending conference days
  • resources for conference days

All other expenses incurred (flights, vaccinations, "spending money", visas, insurance etc.) are not a part of my fundraising target and in the event that I do exceed my target (fingers crossed!) I will donate all excess funds to the LRTT charity directly.

Hopefully this video with give you a better idea of what we set out to do over the Summer! Thank you for taking the time to read this far and any donation, no matter how great or small, will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you :)
