EPF Cunene


The School for the Teachers of the Future in Kunene was established in 2008, as the 10th such school in Angola. It was established in a partnership between the Ministry of Education, the Finnish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, UFF Finland and ADPP.

The objective of the project is to train young Angolans to be pro-active, innovative primary school teachers in rural areas. To date, EPF Kunene has graduated 463 students, 157 of whom are female. The latest team to graduate was the pioneering group of students who embarked on the revised and highly challenging EPF program in 2013.

The Effects of the Project

An EPF education is highly valued. The students at EPF Kunene are trained to work in rural areas, though they are much in demand everywhere.

Primary schools in the immediate neighbourhood of EPF Kunene benefit every year from the presence of 2nd  Year trainees in the classroom and the playground. Rural schools throughout the province benefit from the input of the many final year trainees in long term teaching practice.

Rural communities benefit from the micro projects implemented by 3rd  Year students, and local communities achieve development and change awareness campaigns and actions, whether about health, education or the enviroment.
