hirda_education_4.jpgSince the collapse of the Somali government in 1991, there is a shortage of professional teachers, due to the unsafe and unstable situation. Consequently, Somalia’s educational system has been damaged and needs to be improved. By providing training to teachers HIRDA aims to enhance the quality of education in general. The objective is mainly to upgrade the knowledge of the teachers and to increase their teaching skills, resulting in a better transmission of knowledge and experiences. Another goal of the training is to develop a pool of trained teachers who can offer advice to their peers on classroom management and on how to apply a child-centered and participatory method.

HIRDA has carried out a comprehensive assessment to determine the teachers’ training needs. To correspond with the teachers’ needs and optimize the effectiveness of the trainings, the results of the assessment have been incorporated in the training programmes. Since 2001 we have been conducting those trainings for approximately 70 teachers annually. Teachers and Community Education Committees (CECs) in 32 HIRDA schools in Gedo, Gelgaduud and lower Jubba were the main target group for this project. In the period 2008-2010 HIRDA trained 500 teachers which were employed in school networks, village schools and several Koranic schools which had received HIRDAs support.
