Tanzania: Aga Khan Firm Equips Teachers With New Skills


20 February 2017
Tanzania Daily News (Dar es Salaam)

By Jimmy Lwangili

The Aga Khan foundation has trained over 1,000 headteachers of nursery and primary schools from Lindi and Mtwara regions through its project that seeks to improve education in the East Africa Regions (AKU-IED, EA).

The free training that involved headteachers from Kilwa, Lindi, Nachingwea and Newala districts had benefited from various training of teaching techniques including how to prepare the relevant subjects.

The AKU-IED,EA Project Manager, Mr Ronald Kimambo said the project is well known as 'the project of consolidation of professional and supporting education systems in improving learning outcomes'. This was revealed on Friday during the fourth graduation ceremony since the establishment of the project.

"This is a five year project that sponsored by the government of the Canada and the Aga Khan foundation ... and it's expected to complete at the end of this year," Kimambo briefed during the occasion held in Kilwa District.

According to him, since the establishment of the project has helped bring positive change among teachers and pupils, as well as strengthen government's efforts in improving the education sector. "We hope these teachers will serve as a springboard for their fellow teachers through knowledge sharing," he said.

The main project facilitator, Dr Abdallah Mohamed, said the teachers were taught two courses: Leadership and administration and training, monitoring and assessment of students. He said the courses were taught for six months and provided for three phases, theory, practical and the third is the teachers to meet with trainers to present feedback.

At the same occasion, Planning Officer in the Kilwa District, Mr Francis Kaunda has urged the graduates to use the training for building good understanding capacity to the pupils in their schools. "This is the great opportunity to you guys, use it well and we are so dependent on you to share the skills with the teachers who did not benefit from this project," said Kaunda.

The Acting Director of Training for the Ministry of Education, Science, Technology and Vocational Training, Basiliana Mrimi urged the graduates to actively use the training in improving education by solving teaching challenges in their areas.

One of the graduates, Alfa Milanzi, a headteacher at Madangwa Primary School said the training had helped him get positive change, and that he hopes to perform better in his career than before. "Through these training course I have well understood how to prepare different subject concepts better than before," he said.

The Aga Khan Foundation has bagged an award for implementing a development model that aims at improving access to water and sanitation for marginalised communities across urban and rural areas of the country.

The Aga Khan Development Network (AKDN) of the prestigious foundation received the FICCI-India Sanitation Coalition prize for the initiative that seeks to contribute towards building an open-defecation free India by 2019 under the ‘Swachh Bharat’ mission, the Foundation said on Saturday.

‘Help for 1 lakh families’

The Foundation’s CEO, Tinni Sawhney, and other dignitaries from the Aga Khan Rural Support Programme (AKRSP) received the award from Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu on Thursday.

“The initiative aims at improving access to water and sanitation for marginalised communities across urban and rural India, including helping 1,00,000 families and 538 schools, as well as building toilets in the States of Bihar, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Telangana and Uttar Pradesh,” the Foundation said.

“The model that we have implemented is a collaborative initiative, working in close partnership with the district and the [respective] State government, prioritising a strong behavioural change component to ensure sustained use and maintenance of sanitation facilities,” Ms. Sawhney said.

The integrated block-level sanitation model is being piloted in rural Bihar.
