Number of Provincial Officials: 1

Number of Volunteers: 3

Support and mentoring visits to the teachers will be initiated immediately after the training on the 21st to the 23rd of August.

The main purpose of the visit is to assist teachers with the application of the new and current domains inside their classes as well as to motivate the newly trained teacher-mediators.

The visits will be lead by district and provincial officials as well as by the project team leaders.

Community volunteers will accompany the class visitors on their mentoring visits - they will continue to receive on-site training to provide additional support to the teachers.

The teachers will resume with the systematic implementation of the programme after the visit.

I realized that if one lays down a solid foundation for your learners they will become self-assured and confident human beings.

I understand now that teaching is not just standing in front of the class, but a discussion/ dialogue with your children.
