Train in Leadership and Skills Development
Skills development is critical to rural development especially in predominantly agricultural communities. We are investing in developing young leaders. At Amazing Love School, the elected school council and a team of elected school prefects have done a phenomenal job in acting as a link between the student body, the school boards, teachers and parents.
Children lead school clubs and programs like heart to heart and they prepare reports for the administrators about student welfare, school rules and academic needs. In July 2015, they took lead of the first student led science exhibition in the district.
We regularly conduct training sessions for local leaders in organizational and effective management principles. The two school boards have been trained in their responsibilities. Young people are learning about brick-laying, carpentry and modern farming practices. The local oven constructed in 2014 trained teachers and students on how to bake cakes, and make local pastries. Some women have started catering to the school children.
There is still a lot to be done. Our current goal is to:
- Remove barriers and unleash the potential young people have, through experiences at home, school and community.
- Equip young people with skills for entrepreneurship.
- Improve the professional competencies of teachers.
- Support self-reliance and sustainable development.
We welcome capacity builders to join us in these projects.
