Teacher Training for Unemployed Women in Hyderabad

Hyderabad, India

There is big shortage of trained teachers in India. There are very few trained teachers available in schools that are operating in low income localities of Hyderabad city in India. SEED is dedicated to provide modern education to poor children. One critical part of this program is providing qualified and trained teachers at these schools. Our second objective is to provide employment opportunities to poor women by training them as teachers. Schools provide a decent environment for jobs for women who are not allowed to take up jobs in male dominated fields. By providing teaching skill SEED will empower poor women and improve their quality of life as well as provide an improved educational experience for impoverished children.
