The funding for this project was part of the 1st three year cycle of the AHF Teacher training Quality Education (TTQE) program. The 2nd year of the program cycle included a key teacher training workshop where the most talented teachers were invited to attend an advanced training program that will eventually result in them becoming teacher trainers themselves. The Key teacher training therefore provides the crucial sustainability component of the TTQE program.
The five day workshop in November/December 2009 was attended by 18 teachers from the Khumbu district (Everest district) of the Solu Khumbu region as well as an additional 18 teachers from the relatively poor and under resourced Sotang district (to the south of Khumbu) where the AHF is now focusing its work.
The program has trained teachers to ultimately improve the education of more than 21,000 children in 130 schools in the Khumbu and Sotang districts of Nepal.
Following the workshop there was an unqualified request from the teachers for the program to continue be part of the 3rd year of the 1st 3 year program cycle.
