Addressing Gender Inequality
Empowering women and girls to continue education, breaking down barriers and creating supportive, gender friendly school communities.
We are delighted to confirm the success of the Classrooms In The Clouds bid to the International Soroptimists Educate to Lead Campaign. Inspired and led by the Soroptomists' International President, Yvonne Simpson, through the programme, the bid is facilitating the CITC "Inspire Programme" with intensive and focused training for at least 10 CITC sponsored teachers and more than 1200 girls.
As well as Intensive Teacher Training and mentoring, CITC are providing follow up support through 2 Educational Support Workers working in the classroom alongside CITC teachers in at least 10 schools in the remote regions of Nepal. Developing child centred learning approaches using the 'Train the Trainer' model, CITC will also be supporting First Aid and Menstrual Health training to benefit women and girls in village schools and support more approaches to female health and welfare. Involving the whole school community, CITC's Inspire programme will support gender equality in schools and develop strong female role models through CITC's female teachers and CITC partners in the school and village communities.
