Publication | 8 years of eNSPIRED: an overview
In this publication, we are looking back at the achievements of the eNSPIRED programme over the past few years. Since 2014, we have been organising workshops, seminars and learning weeks for teacher trainers, educations advisers and (future) teachers with education experts from countries in Africa, Asia and South America. We have tried to include all the materials that have been developed. Read, watch, listen and make use of these resources. They are and will remain, at your disposal through our online channels.
Inspiring teachers: Global Teacher Prize 2020
The Global Teacher Prize is an award presented annually to a teacher who has made a significant contribution to the community. eNSPIRED selected the most outstanding stories of teachers who were candidates for the 2020 prize and are thus working on innovations to introduce children to the wonderful world of education and to achieve equity.

Posters on gender and education
With a series of posters, educational experts from Cambodia and Rwanda told us about the educational context in their countries and how they work on gender equality in schools during the International Learning Week in 2019.
Gender and education: two experts take the floor
During the international guest lecture on gender and education in Ghent on November 13, 2018, gender specialists madeleine kennedy-macfoy from Education International (EI) and Wendelien Vantieghem from the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB) were looking for a connection between these gender challenges.
YES! Youth Empowerment Surinam
“YES made me aware, so now I follow the right pathway." YES (Youth Empowerment Suriname) organises trainings for young people in which the development of a positive self image and discovering talents are central.
Gender integration in education: the success of training school leaders
With Girls on MARS in Rwanda, VVOB strengthens the professional development opportunities for primary school leaders and improves the mentorship system for newly qualified teachers. Gender is the thread connecting the four modules of the programme.
School clubs: students searching answers to gender challenges
During meetings of the Bubazi and Aspeka clubs, girls and boys exchange opinions about traditional gender roles and reproductive rights. Members of the club are offered a platform for self-development through a mini-enterprise that introduces them to saving systems, problem solving, entrepreneurship and leadership. Through collaboration they learn to share ideas, trust each other and how to be confident, which is beneficial for their self-esteem.
GRP4ECE toolkit: teachers challenge gender stereotypes
VVOB, Forum for African Women Educationalists (FAWE) and public education partners in Rwanda, South Africa and Zambia have joined forces to develop a practical approach to gender-responsive pedagogy for early childhood education (GRP4ECE). The GRP4ECE toolkit empowers preschool teachers and school leaders to challenge gender stereotypes where they can do the most harm, but where they can also be challenged most effectively: the classroom. An environment free of stereotypes lays a firm foundation for young children to grow up freely exploring and developing their unique interests and talents.
