My name is Eva Karlsson. I am a teacher with focus on the right to education for everyone. I have for 35 years worked with education issues. With an education with focus on the individual, I have during my career worked both with the education of children, adolescents and adults. Workplaces have shifted both when it comes to school level, between age groups, languages and nationalities, but also between countries.
I am currently supervisor of the training of preschool teachers in Nakamtenga, Burkina Faso. The project has aroused considerable interest both nationally and among international visitors. For the success of the project demonstrated both with the children at the preschool, and the “rings-on-the-water”-effects the project has achieved, I have been awarded a National Merit, Chevalier de l’ordre de Merite, by the President of Burkina Faso, Blaise Compaore.
