The Teacher as an Agent of Change

The purpose of this project is to create a movement of teachers that do not just look at teaching as a vocation but to
see themselves more as agent of change in society and how they fit in the transformation of society.

The purpose of this project is to create a movement of teachers that do not just look at teaching as a vocation but to see themselves more as agent of change in society and how they fit in the transformation of society. Providing the needed teaching resources, some material/financial motivation and challenging them to do more using seminars to change their perspective in the way they look at their profession will help focus them to become agent of change in society, thus creating a pull of dedicated teachers in the country willing to bring the necessary change in society.

The main outcome of this is to transform the children under these teachers to be better people in society by improving their academic performance at the end of the three years in the Junior High School.

The focus of the project will be on the teaching of Information Technology at the Basic level. The success of this will be judged by the performance of the children that are handled by the teachers that goes through this program.
