We are delighted to be shortlisted for the Corporate National Partnership Champion Award with Tullow Oil Plc.

“I have closely followed the work that Sabre has been undertaking in collaboration with my colleagues in the Central Region, and am delighted to see the concepts included in the [National Operational] plan being turned to reality through the Transformational Teacher Training pilot. I am very happy to have the Sabre Trust and its Brighter Futures team as a partner in delivering this work, and look forward to a long and successful relationship.”

“Sabre has worked with the central government in Ghana to help shape its national policies, plans and patterns of investment for kindergarten education.
