Projects at TRC

Category: Projects

A great deal of TRC’s work goes beyond the scope of our membership in the form of short and long-term projects supported by local and international donors. Short-term projects involve one-off teacher training workshops, research or the development of publications. Long-term projects address the professional development and capacity building of specific groups; the goal being student learning and school improvement. Through donor projects, TRC has the opportunity to introduce innovative approaches to under-resourced environments and help bridge the gap between public and private schools.

TRC began working intensively in government schools as far back as 1992. At that time, we were a pioneer in the field, fighting against the common belief that nothing could be done for the unfortunate state of government schools. We set out with a commitment to young children and their teachers, and our belief that given enabling environments, change was possible. We took a whole-school approach, proving that, even with limited resources, the mind-set of an entire school could be shifted in a positive, sustainable direction.
