Camara’s Respect Programme
HIV/AIDS is obviously an enormous factor for any development organisation working in Lesotho (with a prevalence rate of 23%). Des O’ Connell produced the Respect Programme for the Hub, and Jeanne Barrett developed the accompanying Respect Teacher’s Manual. Between them they’re a very powerful educational tool, and certainly the only localised example we know of for the country.
The Khan Academy/RACHEL (Remote Areas Community Hotspots for Education and Learning) initiative is a program to advance education through technology in emerging countries. It aims to leverage the large volume of open and free educational courses and libraries available online and make them accessible to communities with no internet access or very limited bandwidth. RACHEL materials can be accessed here.
Teacher Education in Sub Saharan Africa brings together teachers and teacher educators from across Africa and offers a range of materials (Open Educational Resources) to support school based teacher education and training. TESSA resources can be accessed here.
