AREAS WE WORK IN:
ORT Education is an educational NGO which focuses on training and support of teachers in disadvantaged communities.We believe that all children have the right to be taught by teachers who are passionate, well-trained and well resourced. Many teachers haven’t had the privilege of excellent training and are teaching in schools that have too many children in a class, with very few books and other resources to help them. ORT Education raises funds to train and support teachers so that they can become more confident and increase their content knowledge. This helps them to ensure the children these teachers teach get the best education.
