Frontline Institute Angola was established in 2009 by ADPP Angola in Huambo Province. It is the second institution of its kind, and is
based on the original Frontline Institute in Zimbabwe. Courses comprise 6 months of education at the Frontline Institute in Huambo and either a 5-month practical period or advanced training at Frontline Institute Zimbabwe.
Since its launch, Frontline Institute Angola has trained more than 300 staff and volunteers from ADPP projects to work at the frontline of development, helping to fight against poverty, hunger, illiteracy and disease.
Frontline Institute trains key personnel to work in the frontline of development and expansion at ADPP projects. The participants are recruited among employees, volunteers and former students in ADPP projects, who have shown commitment to development. The project benefits the participants themselves, equipping them with new skills. It also reaches thousands of largely rural community members who benefit from the professionality and passion of the participants, both during training as well as after graduation.
In the first six months of 2018, Frontline Institute has had three teams of participants, one finishing the course of training, one entering the five-month practical period, and one initiating their studies. The Institute celebrated the graduation in February of Team 2016 with 12 participants. At the same time, 15 participants from Team 2017 were preparing to join ADPP projects around the country or continue their training on the Advanced Management course at Frontline in Zimbabwe; and Team 2018, with 22 participants, embarked on their basic management course. Frontline Institute is collaborating closely with a sustainable charcoal project by providing training and by cultivating tree saplings in the nursery. All participants at the Institute have been active in community actions and school activities such as horticulture, animal husbandry and cultural events.
