Qualified Teachers for Quality Education

Reeta Devi is one of the many teachers who work with CBM to make quality and inclusive education a reality.

Quality education comes through qualified teachers. That is why CBM continuously focuses on training teachers on inclusive education along with ensuring accessible school infrastructures and curriculum. With teachers trained on inclusion, children with disabilities will get to study alongside children without disabilities and receive quality education.

Quality education transforms lives in multiple ways. It drives economic and social developments, promotes peace, tolerance and social inclusion, and is key to eradicating poverty and achieving personal fulfillment. 

Well-trained and qualified teachers are the heart of quality education. Without them, the fundamental human right to primary and secondary education cannot be met. Having teachers who are not sensitized to the needs of children with disabilities is one of the primary reasons why children with disabilities drop out of schools more often than children without disabilities. It is for that reason that CBM puts enormous energy into training teachers on inclusive education along with ensuring accessible infrastructures and curriculum. 

Over the past 50 years, CBM has had many dedicated teachers to help us make quality education a reality for children with disabilities. One of them is Reeta Devi, a teacher at one of our partners the Montfort Inclusive School in Guwahati. With the dream of becoming a supportive mother to her child with autism and an inspiring teacher to other children with disabilities, Reeta pursued a foundation course on disability after her Master’s degree in Education. Consequently, she is currently a full-fledged teacher for CBM’s RAISE NE project, committed to training other teachers on inclusive education. With the help of many teachers like Reeta Devi, CBM provided quality education to over 12,000 children with disabilities from the poorest communities in India in the year of 2017-18. 

This World Teachers’ Day, we celebrate all the teachers who have been a part of CBM’s journey in creating inclusive educational environments and enabling children with disabilities to study and play alongside children without disabilities. It is our strong belief that quality education can help children with disabilities lead a life of dignity and receive viable livelihood opportunities that will enable them build a secure future.
