Equality News Update: Scottish teacher is transforming school life in Rwanda

A visit to Rwanda while still a North Berwick High School pupil in 2009 has transformed life for one African school and a whole bunch of Scottish teachers.

Kari Spence, now a 26-year-old PE teacher, was so inspired by her visit to the Faith and Hope Academy in Rwanda, she set up a charity.

After years of maintaining contact with the school and working to help the community develop, she has created a ground-breaking initiative to help improve the quality of education both here and in Africa.

This summer Kari was in the position to select 18 young teachers from the UK to go and help out – and in turn take some valuable life lessons back to their own pupils.

And she is now looking for the next group of enthusiastic teachers to go out in July 2018.

Kari set up Together in Sport Rwanda specifically to work with the school in the village of Gako, in the rural district of Bugasera, Rwanda.
