Nurture A Community Teacher
Our teaching faculty is made of fine young men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice to stay back in their village community to serve. Instead of racing for the big city to look for employment, these young men and women of Mondema community have dedicated their lives to becoming the first cohort of teachers to be trained at a local community college. Dovalema Early Childhood Education Center is truly blessed to be working with community members. Most of these teachers had finished their high school, but, because they either did not do well in their exams, or for those who did, their families did not have the financial capacity to support them, these teachers were never able to further their interest of becoming a teacher. With Dovalema, their aspirations has been awaken and their sense of belonging and commitment has been made real.
Supporting these teachers to deliver quality education to 2- 5 years of age means a commitment that would enabled them to grow and give their best. SLFND is truly changing the model that brings in teachers from far away communities to teach, instead of training and developing those in the community who are interested but lack the means and support.
