GWI celebrates World Teachers Day, 5 October 2016
Graduate Women International (GWI) celebrates World Teachers Day, 5 October 2016 by calling on States and policy makers to honour their commitment to achieving the Education Agenda 2030 that “ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all.” GWI actively supports the recruitment and deployment of women teachers through its Teachers for Rural Futures project, based in rural Buyende district, Uganda. Since a lack of women teachers is a barrier to girls’ education in Uganda, GWI is working with its national affiliate, the Uganda Association of University Women (UAUW) to address this shortfall. Girls selected from the rural district of Buyende are sponsored to train as qualified secondary teachers and return to their communities. These young women teachers will have a unique position as positive agents of change to advocate for girls to enrol in and complete secondary school.  Help us celebrate World Teachers Day and also train 50 women teachers and bring about lasting change in Uganda. Donate here!
