The Christopher Strong Education Trust
Many WEF members remember Christopher Strong AM as a passionate educator and advocate for the disadvantaged. Christopher died in 2008 after a short illness. His passing was a shock to his many friends and colleagues around the world.
The World Education Forum Tasmania in support of The Peter Hewitt Care for Africa Foundation has established a Trust Fund in memory of Christopher Strong to sustain the training of teachers in the Tarime District of Tanzania.
In Tarime only 74% of children attend Primary School and a mere 24% go on to attend High School. Families in Tarime value education highly, but schools are poorly resourced and few current teachers are formally trained.
WEFT aims to make a difference by providing a scholarship to train teachers for service in the Tarime district of Tanzania.
Teacher training, along with better teaching resources being provided by the Peter Hewitt Care for Africa Foundation, will make a difference to the opportunities of these people.
You may make a donation to this Trust to ensure its sustainability. A total of AU$40,000 is enough to continue this work in perpetuity.
