Humana People to People (HPP) and its implementing partner; ADPP-Mozambique (ADPP) commit to train 2,000 women to become primary school teachers in rural Mozambique.
In partnership with the Government of Mozambique, HPP and ADPP have already established 10 teacher training colleges graduating primary school teachers, specially equipped and skilled to face the development challenges in rural areas. Upon graduation, teachers will commit themselves to serve in rural school and communities, where the demand for development is most urgently felt.
The teacher training colleges use a pedagogy developed by Humana People to People, whereby the students become the driving force in the learning process. Under the guidance and supervision of their teachers, they train themselves to become modern and active teachers within the school and the community. The pedagogy allows for each student to plan her own education within the framework of the curriculum. Thus, Humana People to People works with fully determined students, who are unafraid, aware of where they are heading andwhat they learn, and personally motivated to overcome the larger challenges of Mozambican rural areas.
Human People to People (HPP) offers the opportunity to provide assistance in training teachers in Mozambique. The commitment to teacher training is long-standing and has produced excellent outcomes asdemonstrated in the quality of the success stories.
HHPP is seeking partners to provide financial support to increase the number of female teachers training for primary schools in rural areas.
