- Team 2015: 61 students, 25 female and 36 male.

The Effects of the Project
EPF Kwanza Norte continues to have an impact on education in the province, through the teaching activities of both 2nd Year and 3rd Year trainees, and the ever increasing number of qualified teachers emerging from the institution.
EPF students, during their training, learn not only to teach to read and write but they also learn entrepreneurship, to be women's advocate, community leader and health agent. They then implement these micro projects, which lead to an improving of the conditions of life in rural communities.
EPF Kwanza Norte has a major influence on the communities around the school, that are involved in all activities whether cultural or about health and hygiene, directly or indirectly.
