Feedback

Okaku Group

The 'Planning' Module was the best one.
The visual timetable has made a big difference to the way the children know what is in the day.

Okaku Group

The best part was the 'Working with Parents' Module, which helped us to relate better with Parents

Okaku Group

This Programme made a difference in my classroom because it changed the way we do things

Eenhana Group 1

The best part was making the books because with the books I am able to teach more freely & the kids understand better with pictures. When they see a picture they answer very quickly and that makes it easier for me to explain further

May 2017

Kasote Group, Rundu

I really like the idea of the Support Group. Then we are learning from each other.
I am really enjoying the Programme.

Agrippina Karukango

The best part of the Programme was getting the Parents involved. The children perform better at school when their Parents are involved in their education
