Moldova | Let Girls Learn | Technology for Modern Girls
volunteer from Wyoming
The gymnasium located in Orhei is home to 397 students. As more and more students are motivated to learn English, our school and local community wants to ensure that we are providing the best English education possible, and making use of modern technologies to do so. It is our goal to modernize the English classroom with a computer, printer, projector, projector screen, and speakers so that students can have a more interactive learning experience. This grant aims to improve opportunities for girls to attain quality education. We intend to purchase all this new equipment with the help of community members, as well as the funds provided by the Let Girls Learn grant.
This equipment will increase classroom productivity, make understanding content from lessons easier, and motivate students to participate through more interesting lessons and providing them access to modern teaching equipment. This equipment will also give our schoolâs two primary English teachers access to modern technology, and we will conduct training seminars with them after everything is installed. This space will make lesson planning more convenient and will help them meet the demands set by our school administration and the Moldovan Ministry of Education.
In addition to providing a more enriching English-learning experience, the school will be able to use the classroom to hold regional seminars for teachers and directors as well as hold open lessons. Furthermore, we have many girls in the 8th and 9th form who participate in the Centru de Tineret from Orhei who would like to use the space to have monthly club meetings to improve girls' leadership skills and participation in community service projects. Finally, we will hold a seminar with PCVs and local professionals to do a Question-and-Answer session with the girls in our school about various opportunities available to them in Moldova, which are English-based, that help them develop career and personals skills, i.e. job related skills which are developed via Diamond Challenge and Technovation Challenge and personal skills such as leadership and teamwork developed in programs such as Wave Week Moldova and GLOW TOBE.
This project has been designed to expand access to education for girls in Moldova as part of the Let Girls Learn Program. Learn more at letgirlslearn.peacecorps.gov.
