BRAC in Afghanistan: Building South-South partnerships in teacher training

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Training para-professionals such as teachers is one of the big challenges among many faced by Afghanistan's educational system. This case study focuses on the innovations offered in that regard by BRAC, a large NGO based in Bangladesh that brought its many years of development experience to Afghanistan in 2002 and established itself there as the premier change agent on multiple developmental fronts. Through the use of structured and semi-structured interviews of stakeholders, classroom observations and extensive document analysis the authors conclude that by successfully modifying its teacher training programme in place in Bangladesh, BRAC has been able to develop an approach to teacher training in Afghanistan that may become a showcase example of effective South-South partnership in education. The paper concludes by urging adoption of BRAC's innovations in teacher training and recruitment by other developing nations facing similar challenges.
