Teachers for Teachers


Teachers College, Columbia University and Finn Church Aid, in partnership with UNHCR and the Lutheran World Federation, have launched the new Teachers for Teachers initiative in Kakuma Refugee Camp, Kenya to support refugee and other teachers in their efforts to improve their own teaching practice and student learning in the camp.‌

Through support from IDEO.org, the Teachers for Teachers model was piloted in 2015 and draws on the best evidence for developing the expertise, knowledge, and motivation of teachers through training, coaching and mentoring. It is a multi-layered and staged approach that unfolds over time, giving refugee teachers the opportunity to absorb what they have learned in the classroom and to test and adopt new strategies.
