Train a teacher
Some of our development programmes are designed to train people to teach others in turn. This empowers local communities to keep learning and up-skilling themselves. This gift helps to fund shared learning and empowerment.
Caritas is working in Solomon Islands on a five-year programme to strengthen the country’s network of Rural Training Centres (RTCs). These are vocational training centres that provide a range of practical skills for young people that enable them to return to their communities and make a valuable contribution, while earning a living.
This programme sees tutors from tertiary institutions in Aotearoa New Zealand sharing knowledge and experience in construction, mechanics and agriculture with RTC instructors in Solomon Islands.
Development programmes like this that are designed to train people to teach others in turn empower local communities to keep learning and up-skilling themselves.
