This documentary explores the work of the dedicated volunteers who come from across the globe to help the Voluntary Service Overseas organization improve education in Ethiopia.
As experienced educators, the volunteers work in partnership with schools, local administrations, training colleges and the Ministry of Education to put new policies into practice.
Gillian Bradley is one of these recruits and works in the northern hill-town of Dessie in the local teacher training college. There she witnesses teachers taking their skills from the British model and applying them in their classrooms.
The area's local cluster scheme also allows schools to share their resources, staff and teaching experiences. Gillian and her colleague Orla McCarthy work closely with these schools, and through the hard work carried out by them and their colleagues across the country, Ethiopia may yet meet the UN Millennium Development Goals by 2015.
