We recently welcomed Noah to our team as Training and Logistics Coordinator. You can read his introduction here.

Co-Management Research Pilot

The Foundation For Tomorrow carefully avoids complacency. Our inquisitive minds, collaborative efforts, and ambitious nature propel us to new heights.

Talking About Assessment

It has been a long time since I posted updates about the Teachers Training program. However, the long hiatus from blogging doesn’t mean we have not been busy. On the contrary, the Teachers Training Program has never been busier! From February, Uswege (the latest addition to the TFFT team and the new training coordinator) and

Chloe Takes On Teacher Training

Deep breath—Inhale…1…2…3…and exhale… I have just finished my first ever Teacher Training for our Primary School Teachers who are facilitating the life skills education at Usa River Academy.  This was a big challenge for me to complete because, while I can train kids with my eyes closed, training teachers is a whole different animal to

Teacher Training Surprise

I’m back with another update from Tanzania, and this one I write with a huge smile on my face!
