Learning Initiatives for Rural Education

LIRE (Learning Initiatives for Rural Education)
The LIRE project was created by the Center for International Education, addressing the challenge of providing primary education in rural areas such as Senegal and The Gambia. CIE will increase access to primary schools and work with education departments to provide multi-grade training in all areas of teaching. Workshops are available to help teachers enhance their knowledge of classroom management, how to use local resources in schools and integrate the community into the classroom.
