A good education is life-changing and is a pilar of Just One Opportunity. We provide training for teachers at the center where teachers return to their villages better equiped to teach. Many teachers we work with only have a high school education and benefit greatly from us equiping them with the tools to effectively teach their students. The main focus of teacher training is based on classroom management, student assessment, collaboration, creative thinking, parental and community engagement, and social literacy.
One example of reaching students with a practical application of Christ's love means that we make sure that every child that wants to attend school in the villages we reach will have a uniform. We also provide basic school supplies for the classrooms and work with the teachers on enhancing the curriculum.
Once students finish primary school, students do not have a nearby high school to attend. The organization has seen a great need not only to train teachers but also ensure students receive a high school education and one day to go to a vocational school or college. High school and college students have to walk for at least 45 minutes, and then take a truck to the main road where they can take a bus to get to school. The organization provides 30 high school students with transportation costs and school supplies and uniforms and provided 10 college students with transportation and other costs. Students will also receive training for computers and English lessons.
