Supporting school pupils
To enable the young people to further their education, the project will offer basic and advanced level studies to 25 teenagers and young mums. They will study with a combination of distance learning via the radio and face-to-face classes at the weekends, held at the local primary school. The curriculum will cover subjects like biology, natural sciences, history, maths and philosophy. In addition, there will be a programme of talks given on human rights, gender equity, environmental conservation, and financial management, which will be open to the whole community. The cost of the project includes textbooks, teaching resources, teacher training, expenses for three volunteer teachers, and adult-sized chairs. The ones at the primary school are tiny!
