Mother tongue education works. Fortunately this awareness is increasing. However, there is a serious shortage of multilingual and culturally appropriate materials and well-trained teachers, especially in remote areas and for small languages.
What can you do?
Become a volunteer
We can use your voluntary efforts. Perhaps you can contribute to one of the following priority activities through your own expertise or your network:
- Creating educational materials and further development of the e-tool
- Teacher training
- Creating global support, including research, monitoring and evaluation
We can also use support with fundraising and communication; interns are welcome. If you would like to make a contribution, please contact Ellen-Rose Kambel.
Become a donor
Changes in education do not just happen, especially for minority groups in developing countries. It requires a long-term commitment. We want to further develop our math method and train more teachers. It is also important that we create a global platform for mother tongue education.
We are therefore looking for donors who are convinced of the importance of mother tongue education. Whether you make a regular or a single donation, your contribution is very welcome.
You can donate directly to our bank account: NL81 INGB 0006 0430 20 (Rutu Foundation, Amsterdam, the Netherlands).
