Teacher Training

TALI trainer Hilary Cate shows Tibetan teachers how to teach math with the Montessori system.
Since 2009, TALI has been conducting several early-childhood teacher training workshops on a yearly basis in all Tibetan areas inside the People's Republic of China. As kindergarten education is gaining ground in rural areas in the People's Republic of China, TALI's workshops provide these teachers with new teaching techniques and materials in Chinese and Tibetan languages to help them develop their kindergarten curricula.
TALI trainer Jessica Elliott teaches Qinghai-based teachers how to make Montessori-inspired materials to teach geography.

Educational Materials

A group of TALI volunteers, under the guidance of Montessori-trained teachers, designed the first set of Montessori Tibetan-language classroom activities to teach a variety of subjects at kindergarten level.

TALI Supports Schools and Libraries

Every year TALI sends books, educational materials, sport goods, and art supplies to schools, kindergarten centers, and libraries in Qinghai, Gansu, Sichuan and Tibet Autonomous Region.
