They were all assembled for the signing of an agreement between the Department for International Development (DFID), the Governments of Rwanda and Malawi and Band Aid/The Hunter Foundation, and managed by the Clinton Hunter Development Initiative (CHDI) at the DFID offices in London. The 4.7m GBP agreement will fund four teacher-training facilities and is expected to result in up to 4,000 new teachers in less than ten years. It is estimated that over 1.2 million children in two of Africa's poorest countries will get a better education as a result of the agreement. .
