PCC MISSION MOMENTS:
October 5 is World Teachers’ Day
In addition to raising awareness about the importance of education for children, Presbyterian World Service & Development’s girls education project in Afghanistan supports training for teachers. Workshops run by local partners help teachers improve the quality of learning for students and build lessons that help girls gain confidence and learn about their rights. Eight-year-old Zakira, inspired by her teachers and her love of learning, is determined to achieve her dreams. “I will become a teacher and teach children,” she shares. Support for teachers in vulnerable communities means future generations are empowered to create a more sustainable, just world.
