World Teachers' Day

World Teachers' Day

FunFriday at the heels of World Teachers' Day, celebrated on October 5th to commemorate the signing of the 1966 ILO-UNESCO Recommendation concerning the Status of Teachers.

To highlight the importance of teachers and their role in shaping the minds of future generations.

World Teachers' Day

The theme for 2023 is "The Teachers We Need For The Education We Want: The Global Imperative To Reverse The Teacher Shortage," focusing on the global shortage of teachers and advocating for policies to attract and retain more teachers. 

Despite the challenges, teaching offers continuous improvement, reasonable packages, a sense of vocation, the power to make a difference, and daily challenges and variety.

United Way South Africa would like to thank and honour the resilience of teachers of South Africa, who continue to shape the minds against all odds. 

We look forward to sharing 'prepared' gifts of love with the teachers when the schools reopens, and we wish them all an ample rest!
