Bao Le – EDUCOA Innovation for Life Skills Teacher Training Workshop

Date grant awarded: March 27, 2019

Three in five young African workers do not have the competencies necessary to secure gainful employment. This skills gap emanates from persistent challenges in the education system. Passionate about contributing to the wellbeing of others through education, Lisa Lau founded EDUCOA to cultivate lifelong learning skills in sub-Saharan African youth to enable them to succeed in the global market. By introducing affordable, student-centered, and ICT-based educational and training programs, EDUCOA has reached 8 schools, 65 teachers and 1200 primary school students in Ghana alone.

This grant will enable EDUCOA to deliver a teacher training workshop in two regions in Ghana to continue this virtuous cycle of learning that will enable even more students to productively engage in the global economy.
