A CATALYST FOR POSITIVE CHANGE: WE NURTURE AND ACCELERATE HUMAN POTENTIAL
We work to inspire profound change in the systems and processes that surround us: we empower people to tackle the challenges of the 21st century. We believe it is individuals and communities learning and acting together that releases untapped potential to make the most of our resources: people and the planet. We work across society, across sectors and across continents to deliver action-based learning programmes that are transformational for everyone involved. We work with local partners to create the foundation stones that can improve the lives of people living in tough social and economic conditions: the creation of livelihoods and access to quality education. We strive to be part of a successful network of organisations working towards the United Nation's Sustainable Development Goals.
SUMMER PROJECT: TEACHERS NEEDED TO HELP IMPROVE EDUCATION IN UGANDA
Visit Ugandan schools and work with local teachers to organise a collaborative forum for Ugandan primary teachers to improve their teaching skills, exchange experience and be inspired. The Forum combines the skills and motivation of visiting teachers with the local knowledge of Ugandan delegates during a two-week on-the-ground project in Buikwe District, Uganda.
The Buikwe District Teachers' Forum is now in its 5th year. Participants will be part of a “relay team” as they leverage the experience of the Forum’s previous editions and pass on the baton to local teams & future groups who will work to ensure continuity in the years to come.
The Great Generation will organise all logistics in country, incl. weekend excursions, meals, secure accommodation, transport and security. Volunteer participants will be accompanied by an experienced first aid and off-site safety trained project leader. Risk assessments are in place.
Participants must book their own flights and fund or fundraise for their participation in the project.
