HOW WE BEGAN
Louise Batamuriza, a talented Rwandan preschool teacher who started Bright School, invited Jan Brown, her mentor, to help with her new school in January 2012. The school was equipped with just one box of 24 Crayola® Crayons and a mat on the floor!
A month later, TEACH Rwanda became a reality, and lives began to change dramatically on two continents. The vision—to bring world-class, culturally relevant practices in early childhood education and teacher mentoring to Rwanda—quickly expanded. Today, TEACH Rwanda is transforming the education infrastructure across the country.
OUR VISION AND MISSION
Rwanda will be a nation of analytical thinkers, confident communicators, collaborative innovators, and compassionate leaders, with a culture that embeds life-long learning based on play and projects.
Collaborate with education leaders through teacher capacity-building to implement global best practices in play and project-based learning that will result in a world-class education system in Rwanda.
