“If I had to identify just one thing as the very best part of the experience, it would probably be having the opportunity to use my training, skills and experience to support others and to influence the progression of teachers and schools. I have seen, first hand, the impact that RedEarth has had on education and I feel immensely privileged to be a part of that. I have also loved just being in Uganda, living in a new (and beautiful place), working with new, inspirational people, and slowly developing an understanding of a culture so different from my own” – Jenny May
“I really feel that the way in which RedEarth works is extremely effective in making a long-term difference to education. Offering training to teachers, visiting schools and building relationships with headteachers, giving invaluable support and feedback are particular aspects of the work that I enjoyed. It is work in which I am very proud to be involved.” – Ali Spinks
“As a Primary Teacher, working with children and teachers in the beautiful setting of rural Ugandan schools has given me the opportunity to reflect on what is important in education today. Through working with RedEarth, I have been able to refine and develop my own skills as a teacher as well as share my knowledge and experience to make an impact on the quality of teaching and learning here. Seeing the difference this makes to teachers and children has been extremely rewarding and is something I will never forget.” – Nikki King
