Dignitas empowers educators by developing leaders who will transform opportunities for the next generation.
Around the world, marginalized communities have self-organized and established schools in the hope of meeting the educational needs of their children. Although the majority of these schools are led by committed community leaders, they lack trained teachers, skilled leadership, and basic resources.
Dignitas partners with these schools, strengthening leadership, improving instructional quality, and providing infrastructural support to help schools create an environment where all children fulfill their potential.
Dignitas is a leading education development organization. We use an innovative training and coaching approach to empower schools and educators in marginalized communities to transform students’ opportunities.
Currently based in Nairobi, Kenya, Dignitas operates in five informal settlements across the city. We partner with schools for a three year period, providing an intensive 3-week Leadership Training Institute, ongoing coaching, tailored personal development workshops and infrastructure support.
