Welcome to a Taste of Turkana

This is the story of Cork teacher Nora Cogan's time in Turkana District in the north-east of Kenya, East Africa.
While serving a two year placement there she saw that it wasn't just the local students who needed help, but the local teachers as well. She held Teacher's Workshops throughout the region and discovered that the teachers had no dedicated training facilities.

Nora decided to build a Teacher Resource Centre and with the help of family, friends and colleagues raised the €45,000 needed. The Turkana Teacher Resource Centre was completed in 2003. Now back in Ireland Nora has more plans for Turkana.
