Project Details

The Canadian Teachers’ Federation will work in partnership with The Gambia Teachers’ Union to test a technological solution that aims to equip and empower women teachers in The Gambia in order to retain them in the teaching profession. Selected women teachers will receive mobiles phones, tools which will enable mentorship relationships and facilitate learning through virtual professional learning communities. This solution would also ensure that more girls and young women in school have teachers (and therefore role models) who are women.
