The Rotary Club of Richmond is sponsoring Jason Chow , Physics teacher from Richmond Secondary to join the District 5040 Vocational Training team. The team leaves for Kenya on Saturday, March 16th. 
PDG John Anderson will lead the group of six middle and secondary teachers to the Wamanyu and Kyaithani areas south east of Nairobi. They will be visiting rural schools and the teachers will conduct a series of four teacher workshops on 21st Century Learning Skills and in particular, the value and benefits of Teaching with Technology.
This VTT is a first for our District and is made possible by a Global Grant from The Rotary Foundation, a grant from the Government of Canada through TRF Canada and the generous financial support of 31 Rotary Clubs in District 5040. Our partners on this VTT are the Rotary Club of Karen - Nairobi (Host Club), The Rotary Club of Machakos, Kenya Connect (KC an NGO supporting schools in rural Kenya) and South East Kenya University (SEKU). The workshops will take place at Kenya Connect's Learning Centre and the team will address staff and students in the Faculty of Education at SEKU.
