Barefoot Activity-based Teacher Training Programme (BABTP)

no-image

AXION

This program provides teacher training to young men and women from slums and villages near Kolkata who lack the basic requirements to be admitted to teachers’ colleges. Sister Cyril and her staff have trained over 7,000 teachers in this program, who in turn have brought primary education to over 350,000 village children with no access to education. The name “Barefoot Teachers” comes from the philosophy that one doesn’t need shoes to walk, but only feet. The teachers in this program are given practical teaching skills (the feet) without the unnecessary (and irrelevant, in this case) addition of teaching theory (the shoe).
