You may remember that the Network recently donated ~$10,000 (USD $6,300) to The Foundation for Tomorrow for the construction of model classrooms in three different primary schools in Tanzania. The classrooms are used to train teachers in the latest student-centered teaching methods.
Teachers in Tanzania are faced with insufficient resources and large class sizes and may often not be aware of current teaching practices. These model classrooms are a way for teachers to improve their teaching in a lovely colourful and well-equipped setting.
