Primary educator training

Thousands of children benefit from better quality education

Primary Educator Training elevates the overall quality of education in Nepal and benefits ALL primary-level students at participating partner schools, not just the Little Sisters. Considering that each teacher interacts with 30, 50, 70 or even 100+ students in a day, this is an extremely cost-effective means to facilitate education, curiosity and the love of learning in the early school years.
