Effects of the Project
EPP Kwanza Norte is a relatively new school. It offers much needed vocational training, and allows students who have missed out on their secondary education to complete 9 th Grade. As the school gains experience, the results will continue to improve. The teachers are committed to carrying out the program to the fullest, with weekly planning and follow- up of all activities, and ensuring that no student falls by the wayside.
The communities around the school benefit in many practical ways, through health and hygiene campaigns, through actions carried out by the Energy Assistants, and through cultural and sporting events held at the school or in the community.
