8th March 2011 is International Women's Day. This year is the centenary International Women's Day; celebrating 100 years of women's achievements. This year's theme is Equal access to education, training and science and technology: Pathways to decent work for women.

TESSA is proud to be working to support women teachers and teacher educators across Africa during 2011.  In particular we are launching a new Saltire Scholarship scheme in Malawi which will provide a pathway into teaching for 500 women this year.

Happy International Women's Day!
