Cuso International volunteers work on teacher training, leadership and management training for school leaders, ESL teaching, and improved primary education, particularly for girls.
We do this because millions of people around the world are missing out on primary education, and struggle to acquire the basic skills they need to unleash their potential for their communities.
In 2011-12, we supported 115 volunteers and 74 partner groups working on education programs in 15 countries.
Here are a few stories on volunteers who worked in the Education focus area:
After a successful career as a teacher, Mary Hickey of PEI volunteers overseas in Rwanda with Cuso International. Again.
A Toronto teacher leaves Canada’s biggest school board to help his colleagues in Bukoba, Tanzania.
A volunteer’s expertise in education leads to several overseas placements, and lessons she won’t learn in a textbook.
