Post-tsunami education in the Maldives

Christine Crosby, Carmen Beaton

Volunteer teachers have helped to rebuild school education in the Maldives after the crisis of the 2004 tsunami, through a project managed by Australian Volunteers International. Reinstating primary and secondary education programs was a priority, in an effort to restore normality and routine to the lives of children, their families and their communities. As well as teaching in classrooms the highly skilled volunteers provided trauma counselling to children and introduced their local colleagues to student centred activities, reflective games and revision techniques.
