Mrs Silk's Adventure
Mrs Silk is off on an adventure during the summer holidays (9th - 21st August to support the training of teachers in Sierra Leone. She is going as part of the International Teacher Training Programme, with the charity Street Child, to spend two weeks working alongside local teaching specialists sharing skills and enabling local teachers to develop their own teaching practice to improve the quality of education for children in the country.
Street Child use this teacher training programme to support education in Sierra Leone, Uganda and, as of this year, Sri Lanka. The charity has supported over 250,000 children into education since 2008.
If you would like to donate to the charity, and support Mrs Silk in her work with them, there is a link to a GoFundMe page below where any size of donation would be gratefully received.
As part of a government initiative, any money raised and donated before the beginning of March will be matched by the government.
