Zambian teachers face considerable constraints in the execution of their duties, ranging from poorly developed educational infrastructure to an educational system that provides minimal opportunities for professional development.

Teachers Without Borders has been working with a local non-profit partner, Project EDUCATE, to help address these challenges. Together, we implemented an effective pilot program based on the Certificate of Teaching Mastery and secured endorsements from the Zambian Ministry of Education and the Mufulira College of Education.

Our partner, Project EDUCATE, was founded in 2006. It is  a non-profit, non-governmental organization designed to help improve educational standards and infrastructure in Zambia as  a way of helping to build developmental capacity. It has become internationally recognized as a resource for integrating Information Communication Technologies in education. The organization's Information Communication Technologies program was selected as a finalist in the 2008 Stockholm Challenge Competition.

Currently, Teachers Without Borders is working with the Mufulira College of Education to provide teacher professional development opportunities to pre-service and in-service teachers.
