IMD Toolkit for T.E.A.C.H. Projects

The IMD Toolkit for T.E.A.C.H. Projects includes a set of tools designed for T.E.A.C.H. Projects and templates to tailor for local use in sharing the importance of an educated workforce with recipients, sponsors, partners, higher education institutions, funders and more.
