Introducing the 2015 Teacher Training Teams

Every two years, and sometimes more often thanks to generous donors who believe in the power of education, LWB sends a training team to China. This teacher training team collaborates with teachers in our Believe in Me (BIM) Schools about how to better meet the needs of students with a variety of abilities and challenges. It’s an incredible time of working together on behalf of students.

As someone who wants to become a doctor in addition to being adopted from China made this cleft exchange an extremely profound experience for me. Read more.
