The Dignitas Project’s leadership institute will support the development and training of 160 teachers, principals, parents, and community leaders living in one of Kenya’s largest and oldest informal settlements. With accreditation support from the University of Nairobi and a community-based model, along with intensive classroom training, on-site coaching and mentorship, Dignitas will improve education, health, and life opportunities for more than 6,000 children in 24 schools during 2011.
TeachAIDS is proud to support the tireless efforts of the Dignitas Project team. Together we will address the challenges associated with delivering high-quality HIV/AIDS education to slum communities in Kenya.
