TRAINING AND RESEARCH
Education is one of the most powerful and proven vehicles for sustainable development, as highlighted by SDG 4.
Investing in knowledge and skills development builds human resource, and positively impacts upon multiple other development areas. Although primary education is technically free in many parts of Eastern Africa, it may be unavailable due to geographical limitations, and barriers such as requiring children to bring their own stationary and wear a uniform – unaffordable to some families. Many children (particularly girls) drop out before developing basic literacy and numeracy.
We believe in the capacity of local leaders to transform their communities, and by investing in our leaders and their skills, we are able to support and accelerate the transformation that they are already bringing about. We support partners to provide teaching and training for both adults and children in communities where education is scarce.
We also work with partners to bring more advanced training and leadership skill-development to our network through advanced training courses and conferences in areas such as IT, enterprise-development and growing as a Women's leader.
“Afrinspire listens to the ideas of Africans and builds with them, not shaping but supporting the agenda of partners”
