TheFondation Turing regards education as a means to offer people new opportunities in their lives in a constructive, structural and respectful way.
Moreover, education benefits not only the individual, but also his environment and society as a whole. It can be seen as a sustainable method of poverty reduction.
We aim to increase the availability of vocational training; and teacher training for quality education; in eight african countries: Burkina Faso, D.R. Congo, Guinee, Cameroen, Liberia, Mali, Niger, and Sierra Leone..
Nursing Training, D.R. Congo, 2021-2024
Wonder Foundation was established in the United Kingdom in 2012. The organisation supports NGOs in eighteen countries that are committed to education and employment for girls and women. In D.R. Congo, Wonder has been working with ISSI, a local nursing programme since 2015, and also provides scholarships. This project is supporting 40 young women during their three-year nurse training. An online platform is also being developed to provide online training for nurses across the country, starting with an important hygiene course for 1,200 nurses. This provides training to a large group of working nurses, who can improve their skills and not only provide better care but also increase their market value. The Turing Foundation is contributing €45,000 towards this project (of which €25,000 in 2021).
