About the Project
In most developing countries teacher motivation and commitment remain disturbingly low. In India one in four teachers are absent on any given day and nearly 84 percent of Ugandan teachers would quit if given a choice. STIR is building the largest independent professional movement for teachers across the developing world to motivate and empower teachers so that they become skillful practitioners and impact child learning. Their focus is on creating catalytic impact and leveraging partnerships to build this movement, including 21 operating NGO partners such as Pratham, Bharti Foundation, Educate Girls, and PEAS, as well as the governments of India and Uganda.
