Giving Back Africa (GBA) received $9,200 in flexible funding towards staff capacity building and the expansion of its learning circles for teachers in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). In 2010, GBA made a 5-year commitment to develop and deliver its pilot curriculum in partnership with teachers at the Central Salisa School and Orphanage (CS). In 2015, to deepen its regional impact and share project based curriculum techniques, Giving Back to Africa piloted a highly successful peer learning circle for teachers. In 2016, the organization will expand this success by hosting learning circles at two additional schools. This expansion requires additional staffing, including the addition of a program officer.
