Despite Rwanda's tremendous strides towards providing free and equal primary education for all, too little training, too few teachers and inadequate classrooms still pose serious challenges to the goal of universal primary access. Consequently, APIE is working with several local and international partners to help find solutions.
Developing infrastructure to meet the needs of the fast-growing student body in Rwanda is essential. Learning resources, management skills, teacher training and parental involvement are also fundamental to the development of a modern school. At APIE, we are working to address all of these issues, as well as the specific needs of our own particular schools.
A quiet child in a class of 58 pupils with no desk, books or individual learning support stands little chance of gaining any real education. Teachers in these situations recognise this and are equally frustrated. They want the opportunity to reach every one of their students whatever their needs and abilities. Over the last year, APIE has worked closely with teachers to help them convert cramped and unexciting classroom environments into open, stimulating and active learning spaces.
Working with local and international teachers and educational experts, we provide a comprehensive approach to overcome challenges in the education sector. Please explore the links on the left to learn more about our work and how you can get involved.
