Training contributes to our community outreaches and the sustainability of our programs. The purpose of our training program is to capture and take forward the teaching and learning methodologies implemented by the Ministry of Education in communities in which we operate and to produce guidelines for organizing similar competence development of teachers in the area.
The aim is to inspire and enable policy makers and practitioners to organize a school-based approach for a continuing professional development of teachers particularly schools in deprived/rural communities.
Two categories of our training program concerns: (1) In-Service Training for Teachers and (2) Empowerment Training for the Young Adult
(1) In-Service Training for Teachers
In–Service training program is frequently organized to orient new teachers and also upgrade the old ones on new concepts of teaching. We do so by organizing tailored made seminars which are normally handed by experienced professional educationists. The organizers of the programs vary from year to year and are tailored to specific needs of the teachers as well as the school system.
The purposes of in–service education are the following:
(2) Empowerment Training for the Young Adult
The objective of the Youth Empowerment Programme is to improve the livelihoods of young people living and working in rural communities in which we operate. The program is targeted at indigenous young people from slums and rural communities in sub-Saharan Africa. We do so through the provision of practical training in construction, business development and information communication technology that will lead to income generating activities. Knowing that, by doing so, we would be helping to reduce poverty by empowering young adults to be self-aware, self-reliant and self-dependent in all communities in which we shall operate.
Donor Agencies, Well-wishers and friends of children and young adults can support us in the realization of our objective by:
