Short-Term (few weeks/months)


In collaboration with the community and Rwanda’s leadership, Rwanda Girls Initiative (RGI) was founded in order to establish an upper-secondary boarding school, Gashora Girls Academy of Science and Technology (GGAST), that removes the many barriers to education that girls’ face. GGAST first opened its doors in 2011 and has graduated 528 dynamic young leaders.

We support an environment of academic excellence, ensuring that graduates will become inspired young leaders filled with confidence, a love of learning and a sense of economic empowerment to strengthen their communities and foster Rwanda’s growth.

Our teachers are committed to learning new and innovative ways to engage our students in and out of the classroom. We welcome experienced teachers to provide professional development in the area of teaching and learning.

We invite experienced teachers who are interested in sharing their expertise to consider volunteering at Gashora Girls Academy. Depending on the duration of your stay, your time can be spent working with our teachers and students both in and out of the classroom.

Although we will consider expertise in any area, we are especially looking for teacher development opportunities in the area of experiential and inquiry-based, active learning. 

In addition, we welcome development in the areas of:

*Problem-based Learning and Project-based Learning (including but not limited to laboratory activities)

*Differential/Differentiated Learning (related to the achievement gap between students from disadvantaged and advantaged backgrounds)

*Teaching Expressive and Scientific Writing

*Lesson Design

*Incorporating University Preparation and Professional Development in the Classroom

*Discipline-specific Pedagogy

*Developing Effective Assessment Tools

*Teaching for Diversity, Inclusion, and Tolerance—Inclusive Teaching

*Developing Effective Homework Assignments

*Coaching Students for Success for Post-Secondary Education and Beyond
