Canadian teachers training mission to Kenya
District 5040 Vocational Training team project was featured on the May 12 Zone 28/32 Rotary Foundation virtual gala.  
The Rotary Club of Richmond was the proud sponsor of Jason Chow, one of the 6 team members led by PDG John Anderson. The team travelled to Kenya on March 16, 2019 to conduct 2 weeks workshop to train teachers to teach with technology and implement 21Century Learning Skills in the classrooms. 
The VTT project focused on the basic education and literacy area of focus. It didn't just change the lives of the students; it changed the Kenyan and Canadian teachers and how they will teach for the remainder of their teaching careers. The project shows the true sustainability of the work of The Rotary Foundation. (Watch video
