The aim of the Perivoli Schools Trust is to support the education of nursery school children in Namibia. The Trust is a registered charity in Namibia established by the Perivoli Trust which is a Mauritian domiciled Trust established by a UK based individual, James Alexandroff.
The Trust recognises that learning through play is the basis of all learning, particularly for children under the age of six. Unfortunately the vast majority of children in Namibia have very little playtime experience.
The Perivoli Teacher Training Programme is interactive, practical, fun and includes a body image module.
The Perivoli Teacher Training Programme is making a difference in Mariental.

Our mission is to transform the prospects of children in poor communities by showing nursery school teachers how to stimulate their young charges by using simple everyday waste materials as teaching aids. We believe, as we explain in this website, that our approach is scalable, sustainable and affordable.
Last week we held an excellent training session for Perivoli Trainers at Okonjima Africat Centre. The emphasis was on looking at ECERS (our Monitoring & Evaluation tool), changing our Modules to fit the Namibian context and practice delivery of Modules.
In the next few months we will finish the Programme with some of our current groups and will start our new Programme with new groups.
We are looking for people who can commit to facilitating Modules, run Support Groups and do School Class Support, to be Trainers in this future Programme.
