Today we finalised a very exciting project involving Haileybury Astana, the British Embassy in Kazakhstan and the Turkestan Oblast.
The project involving the Haileybury Astana Outreach team in the Turkestan Oblast to improve access of local teachers to international best practices to effectively promote girls’ empowerment, leadership and the protection of girls’ rights.
Over the course of the project the Haileybury Astana Outreach team, made up of a group of passionate teachers, will deliver training for local teachers sharing resources and techniques on the effective delivery of girls’ empowerment education policies. In addition a group of teachers from the Turkestan Oblast will come to visit us at Haileybury Astana to observe teachers working in another pedagogical environment.
The Haileybury Astana Outreach team will also lead a camp together with local teachers for a group of girls from the Turkestan Oblast to start building greater confidence, assertiveness and critical thinking.
We are very proud to be part of this project to help the Turkestan Oblast to improve the situation with girls’ rights and eventually increase the number or women in decision making positions. This is one of the key goals of the Kazakhstan Concept on Family and Gender Policy.
