Our inaugural session in Africa was a resounding success!

We’ve made incredible strides, reaching 30 countries and enrolling over 1.322 teachers. A whopping 2.880 teachers have eagerly subscribed to our information newsletters, and we’ve touched base with 388 cities during the 60-day campaign.

The feedback has been phenomenal, with thousands expressing their thoughts on the journey. We’ve seen active participation from teachers in remote areas, as well as those from universities and research centers.

As we approach the registration closure on January 20, we want to express our gratitude for the overwhelming support in bringing this project to life. For now, we’ll be focusing on our participants and their training until we reopen registration in April.

Stay tuned for our next campaign in a few months! Until then, a big thank you to everyone who has been a part of this journey. 

For those eagerly waiting, here’s a sneak peek at some of the comments you’ve shared after attending Teachers Outreach classes in these initial months. 

Your thoughts and what you’ve learned are like pure oxygen to us:

C.N: the key element in meeting the peace challenge lies in education”. I love how this course is helping me to see how teachers can function as agents of change in the capacity of nation building through conscious reinforcement of the importance of peace among the children who are the future generations“.

E.G.: “observation is key.

  1. you observe students’ attention,
  2. you observe your emotional state
  3. you observe students’ emotional state
  4. 4.then you take action.

This is wonderful!”

J.B.:Hi from this lesson, I learnt that both internal and external environments work together. The former is determined by psychological, neurological and physical components while the latter is determined by perceptions around us.That meditation and intention are important parameters in internal environment while non interference of noise and other stimuli around us determine a good external environment to aid teaching and learning. It’s only excessive noise that impacts on learning and sleep negatively and not its total absence“.

D.A.; Pain is unavoidable but we can approach it in a different manner. Both teachers and students feel pain which can make us reacts negatively. But we can relieve ourselves of pain by asking the following questions;

  • what are we feeling?
  • where do we physically feel that emotions?
  • what intensity does it have?
  • what are it origins?
  • what can we do now?
  • who can help us?

Having this knowledge will help me to brood less over pain which is one bad habit I have. I will rather seek for solution/help and not get weighed down by it because my inner peace is more important“.

H.L.:I personally feel this unit has been designed specially for me. I learned that overthinking a problem or pain does not solve it but, rather increases it. From the understanding I gained from this unit, I can more confidently try to profer solutions to pains encountered without procrastination. In that way, I will be in a better mood to teach students and not having to transfer an aggression”.

S.S.A:I was so interesting to learn how events are interpreted in our brain and how we can work on that. I now know how to interpret and creating favorable conditions“.

I.I.:This unit has instilled a positive mindset in me, emphasizing that teaching is a profession requiring individuals capable of dedicating themselves fully and expressing their best selves. It highlights the importance of making excellence a new normal for those who approach their work with passion. To attain educational goals, one must consider three aspects of contemporary education, distinguishing between idealism and method, emphasizing personal potential development, and acknowledging the crucial role played by teachers in the learning process. Furthermore, the unit explores how human beings engage in three educational processes: development, growth, and evolution. It stresses the significance of understanding the psychology of change and the pedagogy of potential, facilitating a shift from a culture of acquiring knowledge to one of organizing knowledge. This involves differentiating knowledge and teaching cognitive frameworks to new generations who are self-aware of their potential, fostering traits such as self-regulation, motivation, empathy, and social skills to shape the future.

This unit has provided insights into a lingering concern about job requirements, revealing that contemporary employers seek individuals with emotional intelligence and social skills. Being inclusive team players capable of adapting to diverse environments and cultures while resolving conflicts is increasingly valued in the job market“.

L: This unit has created a positive shift in me by imparting mechanisms to navigate challenges that I previously lacked. When confronted with difficulties, I used to struggle with managing negative thoughts, but the insights gained from this unit have provided effective tools. Self-control and silence emerged as two indispensable keys to maintaining peace in a hostile environment. The practice of questioning has proven instrumental, almost serving as a remedy in dealing with challenging situations”.
