“I have not only developed skills through GLP but realised the skills which I already have. In Rwanda you are constantly drawing on all your teaching skills. It is not until you are in a totally different environment, with little resources, that you think back to the basics of teaching and learning. I have learnt to be very resourceful, flexible and creatively use what is available.”

Laura Gauld, GLP 2018
