Community Teacher Project
In areas where there is a lack of proper education, we provide teachers and start schools. In this way an entire community of children receives an education rather than a select few, but there's more.
Every 43 hours a new Community Center is formed somewhere in the world by World in Need. The centers are a nondenominational source of strength, spiritual growth and educational assistance.
Each center serves as the hub for delivering World in Need’s livelihood, medical, abandoned children and educational programs for adults and children.
Like everything World in Need initiates, the Community Centers operate on short-term assistance and produce long-term, self-multiplying results.
Each center is run by a member of the community, who has been taught how to provide leadership and training to community members.
All centers become self-sustaining within 18 months and members go on to start other centers in neighboring villages. While many centers have been started with World in Need assistance, twice as many more have been opened by locals themselves.
Seven days a week, since 1991, locals have been teaching others to teach others through the Community Centers. The Centers provide educational assistance and supplies to children and adults, helping them to obtain access to education.
They also support the practice of ethical values and offer free medical care. In many ways the Community Centers help bring physical, social, emotional and community needs into harmony.
