[picture]Teachers for East Africa and Teacher Education in East Africa
Teachers for East Africa (TEA) and Teacher Education in East Africa (TEEA) are two important projects that provided teachers for secondary schools and teacher training colleges in East Africa in the 1960s. TEA was one of the first international initiatives of the Kennedy Administration, launched in February 1961 with a grant to Teachers College from the International Cooperation Agency, the predecessor to the Agency for International Development (AID).

TC had the professional responsibility of recruiting, selecting, and training American teachers for educational service and providing technical assistance to help increase the number of local qualified teachers who were trained in East Africa.

TEA was announced in February of 1961 and 150 teachers began training at Teachers College in June of that year. Three waves of TEA went to East Africa: 1961-62; 1962-63; and 1963-64. By 1972, TEA supplied 631 teachers for secondary schools and teacher training colleges in Kenya, Tanzania, and Uganda.

The project was instrumental in expanding secondary school education in preparation for independence in the three countries between 1961 and 1963-a time when there were a mere handful of secondary schools in these countries. Orientation and further education for some participants took place at Makerere College in Kampala, Uganda. Teachers were assigned to secondary schools and teacher training colleges for two-year periods.
