Providing Pre-service Educators a Global Perspective on Teaching and Learning

During a stay in Kisumu, participants will co-plan and co-teach lessons under the guidance of a resident teacher. Participants will also engage in professional development trainings and reflective exercises with fellow cohort members.

Depending on the length of your stay, there will be opportunities to go on guided excursions, create a service project, lead an extra-curricular activity, or even meet an officer from the Kenyan ministry of education.
