The Effects of the Project

EPF Luanda works closely with the Provincial Department of Education and forms part of the ZIP, Zone of Pedagogical Influence. For many years, the school has been training highly qualified primary teachers for schools in Luanda and Moxico.

The local primary schools benefit from the presence of 2nd Year students gaining classroom experience, and rural primary schools benefit from having 3rd Year students teaching full time for the entire academic year. Local and rural communities also benefit from the actions and activities undertaken by EPF Luanda and its students.

Young people from neighboring districts are encouraged to visit EPF Luanda and participate in open days and café evenings, sport events or community actions. They are also encouraged to enroll at the school, and can observe at first-hand the strides being made by EPF students, both personally and in general development terms.
