#PowerOfHope: A teacher’s training that made learning fun for children – News

Leonila spends most of her free time developing new learning activities and shares her experience with teachers from nearby schools.

After graduating from TTC Mururu in Rwanda in 2016, Mukandayishime Leonila started her career in preschool teaching. She was determined to provide her students with the best education she could, using the available limited resources, but she soon became stuck in her routine.

Explaining the difficulties faced in the classroom, she said: “The playing corner made me so tense. I had a large carpet where children could play with the available toys. The activities were boring and lacked diversity, depriving children of the freedom to choose their own activities and limiting them to playing in one place with specific objects.”

Leonila and another teacher were selected to join the Dubai Cares’ ‘Voluntary Service Overseas’ (VSO) programme in Rwanda, which trained them to develop an effective educational plan and honed their teaching skills. “Small matters that I ignored before became the main source of motivation for innovation and creativity and made the daily activities more fun and effective,”

Leonila highlighted the importance of the skills she learned through the VSO.  She now spends most of her free time developing new learning activities and shares her experience with teachers from nearby schools.

Impressed by her students’ interaction with the teaching material she uses now, Leonila said: “What if I hadn’t received this training? Would I have been able to give the children these fun and effective educational experiences?”

Dubai Cares’ projects touched the lives of more than 20 million people in 59 developing countries last year. It trained 123,725 teachers and established 8,437 parent-teacher associations.
