“ReTRA-Teachers : Empowering Teachers To Transform Youth of Africa”


ReTRA – Africa is a Global CSR program to uplift marginalised Youths of Africa by providing access to international quality education and skills at minimal cost. ReTRA – Africa  has its antecedents in the Langkawi International Dialogue (L.I.D) which was a Congregation of African Leaders in Malaysia to establish SMART PARTNERSHIPS to promote investment , trade and education since 1997.

A significant outcome of the LID education component led by Binary University was the establishment of the Binary- First Lady Scholarships and Binary Global Teaching Centers (GTCs) in several African Nations.ReTRA-Africa represents another phase of Binary University’s continuing engagement with Africa,in particular the Youth, Educators and Community Leaders.

Retra Scholarship Fund : 100% Scholarship

The aim of ReTRA – Africa is to empower 100,000 African Youth, Educators and Community Leaders by 2030 transforming them to become Industry Specialist Professional Talents, Youth Entrepreneurs and Skilled Professionals. To achieve this aim, the ReTRA Scholarship Fund was established where all qualified African Youth and Educators will be provided 100% Scholarship and all tuition fees to pursue Binary Degrees, MicroDegrees and ReTRA-Skills programs are totally waived. Students only pay a small exam fees per subject.


As the name implies,ReTRA-Teachers is a Global CSR Program for Teachers in Schools and Lecturers at Tertiary institutions to participate. This program was established with the primary purpose of  transforming  Teachers and Lecturers into world-class Educators.The Program also provides a practical and affordable pathway to enhance one’s career development and personal growth. Teachers can take these 2 programs from anywhere,anytime as all modules have been captured in Video Lectures by Professors and Animated Audios plus supported by access to digital library and other resources.

While there are a wide range of programs that are offered to educators around the world under the Binary Graduate School (BGS) and the Binary Executive Education (BEE) Centre,under ReTRA-Teachers Project,the following 2 programs have been made available where all Teachers will be completely exempted from paying any tuition fees.These  2 programs are

  • MSc Education Management

  • Certified Academic Researcher (CARE) Program

Binary University is recognised by the following international organisations


The heart and soul of a great education system are its teachers. Teachers transform the knowledge in textbooks to life through their engaging lessons and inspire students to achieve their full potential. Countries that have topped the charts in the OECD’s Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) Study has consciously  invested in enhancing the calibre of teachers who in turn are empowered to continuously improve the performance of schools and their students.

While it is expected that teachers would have undergone a formal Teachers Training Program (TTP) before embarking on a career in teaching, most TTPs often do not equip teachers to become world-class educators. To be a world-class educator, teachers have to be prolific researchers. Through research, teachers can enhance their potential as well as adopt creative and innovative ways to teach, inspire and engage with their students. The CARE Program was developed to meet this vacuum.
