provide Montessori teacher training.

Tax deductible
Hello, my name is Alice Iddi-Gubbels, the Executive Director Emeritus of PAMBE Ghana. I am fundraising for PAMBE Ghana to sponsor two teachers from the La'angum Learning Centre (LLC) in Ghana to undertake a Montessori Elementary course in Houston Montessori Center, USA.

I founded PAMBE Ghana which established the La’angum Learning Center (LLC), in partnership with rural communities, in the North
East Region of Ghana in 2008. We started small, with 40 preschool children. La'angum now serves over 270 children from pre-K to 6th grade in this rural area. The first cohort of children who began in 2008 are now entering tertiary institutions.

PAMBE Ghana LLC' continues to focus on providing a solid foundation in the early years. "The end depends on the beginning"!

Being a certified Montessori practitioner, I began LLC on the Montessori education model since its inception. PAMBE Ghana strove to provide Montessori teacher training and support by sending visiting resource persons for short periods over the last few years.

While this support has been helpful, it has become apparent that it is not sufficient, as LLC student population has grown and more and more teachers, who know little about Montessori, have joined the teaching staff. Additionally, I went on retirement three years ago.

There is a dire need to provide professional Montessori training to the teachers, and gradually build local capacity and expertise in this area. And yet, there is no accredited institution to provide Montessori elementary training and internship in Ghana.

These funds will help to cover the two teachers' lodging, living expenses and commuting to Houston Montessori Center for lectures and seminars, as well as their lodging, living expenses and commuting for the practicum during the school year.
