Kenyan teachers learn self defense skills to pass on to students
posted March 5, 2014 by Isabel Garcia
Dolphin has been very busy! We’re happy to report that over the last 90 days Dolphin trained 241 public and private primary school teachers across Nairobi. Specifically, Dolphin staff reached: 59 teachers in Westlands Division, 66 teachers in Dagoretti Division, and 93 Teachers in Starehe Division.. –We also trained 23 peer educators in Kayole location, Nairobi.
Risks and challenges
Erratic rains across Nairobi meant that some of the trainings had to be postponed due to road conditions.
Duncan Momba, Co-Founder of Dolphin, was pleased with how engaged teachers were and said, “The trainings went on so well with teachers responding to the trainings!”
Dolphin will continue with their training program in Maungu along Nairobi Mombasa highway after rains subside. They will also be making a special trip to Cape Town, South Africa in March to do a training for educators who will teach their skills to local school children.
To date, the Dolphin team has spent $3500 USD on their teacher training program. They are off to a great start and look forward to training teachers over the course of the next 2 years.
