MISSION CAPSULES: Many children around the world do not have the opportunity to go to school for a variety of reasons – one of them is a lack of trained teachers. To improve access to quality education that helps children escape cycles of poverty, PWS&D’s girls education project in Afghanistan runs workshops to strengthen the capacity of teachers. Teachers are educated about child rights, gender and peace, and trained in improved teaching methods to ensure that access to education translates to positive learning outcomes for girls and boys. “My lessons were difficult and sometimes boring for the students,” admits Ismatullah, a school teacher in Bamyan, Afghanistan. “After receiving this training, I learned interactive teaching methods that improve the teaching quality and engagement of the students during classroom activities.”
