About the Teachers and the Schools

The works at the Island of Promise consists of the development of one hub school and 18 village schools across the island. The hub school is designed to be financially independent and looking forward to subsidy the other 18 village schools. The village schools practice farming to help the operational cost of the schools.

The schools serves 499 children through 43 teachers, including 7 TransformNation interns: Lydia, Jordan, Erin, Victor, Joy, Mario and Meli.

About the Island

The Island of Promise is wellknown of its thousands of hilly savanah. Because of it's challenging topography, the villages are scattered on the hills with many disconnected from modern facilities such as electricity and clean water.

There are around 5,3 million people on the island with 20% of them living in poverty. Most of them are farmers with nomads culture. The high school drop out rate reaches 25%, and around 429,000 people still can't read and write.

Things to Discuss

1. The Education Board's data shows that 1,3 millions of children at the Island of Promise dropout by the time they reach high school, and more than 400 thousands are still struggling with literacy. Do you think that schools and young teachers can make differences?

2. Let's discuss about how the support from North America had reached these remote villages. What is your advice so we can help more children maximizing their potentials?

3. What kind of changes would you like to see in the lives of children at the Island of Promise and how can you be a part of those changes?


4. Is there any questions do you have about the work? What would you learn or understand better?
