ICS celebrates World Teachers Day in schools

ICS-SP today joined the rest of the world in commemorating this year’s World Teachers Day. Our Staff in Busia County – Western Kenya and Shinyanga in Northern Tanzania paid courtesy calls to different schools.

ICS values teachers
During the visits, we expressed our gratitude to school heads, Boards of Management and teachers for implementing EVAC Programme and for promoting child safety in and out of schools. At ICS, we value the role of teachers in Ending Violence against Children. Every teacher is a great asset to us as we remain committed to having a world where every child grows in a safe and nurturing environment.

ICS awards teachers after EVAC Training
In Busia County, we visited Ojamii Primary School and Township primary school. The two are among 25 schools in the region in which we implement EVAC. We also took the opportunity to award teachers with certificates having successfully completed training on EVAC. At Ojamii Primary, a little girl caught everyone by surprise when she offered to handover a certificate to one of her teachers, Mr. Bernard Omoloi.

In Tanzania, we visited Samuye primary school. A jovial mood engulfed the school as students made presentations in praise of their teachers and the work of ICS in promoting the rights of children.

World Teachers Day Background
UNESCO proclaimed 5 October to be World Teachers’ Day in 1994, to focus on the rights and responsibilities of teachers. This year’s theme is: “Valuing Teachers, Improving their Status”
