We are teachers coaching teachers through shared educational experiences.
Primary Literacy Initiative’s focus is to provide a platform for teachers to coach fellow teachers through shared educational experiences and training. Within the program, teachers are inspired to develop a rigorous and impactful literacy foundation with the goal of transforming students into lifelong readers, writers, and thinkers.
In the West African countries where we work, the Knightbridge Project is committed to building the capacities of primary literacy (reading and writing) educators. In Ghana, Liberia, and beyond, we recognize primary-level literacy as a fundamental building block to education, and our initiative is committed to making that a reality for all children. Through our work, we are confident that together, we can improve essential early literacy instruction in our local communities.
