Graça Machel Trust launches movement to elevate women's leadership in African development
Anadarko and its partners have joined an initiative to produce books in local languages as a way of contributing to literacy in four Mozambican provinces.
The initiative, covering Cabo Delgado, Niassa, Tete and Maputo is being implemented by the Ministry of Education and Human Development (MINEDH), the Progresso Association and Canada’s CODE non-governmental organization. The project employs a variety of strategies to improve the quality of teacher education in the provinces concerned.
Speaking at the launch, Anadarko representative Eva Pinto reaffirmed the company’s commitment to developing and supporting initiatives that create long-term benefits for Mozambicans. This commitment to the country’s development, Pinto said, was demonstrated by its support for the launch of the 11 titles, produced in each of the six national languages, including Portuguese.
The event took place at the Pemba Teacher Training Institute in Cabo Delgado, and included a reading competition for students from 1st to 7th grades and trainees to become 1st to 3rd grade teachers.
The National Director of Teacher Training, Feliciano Mahalane, said the date was a celebration of reading.
“Today is a day we celebrate reading. Our life is made up of reading, but there is no good education if we do not have good teachers. It is they who define the good course of education.”
According to the Director of the Teacher Training Institute Joaquim Alberto Chipande, the books were a contribution to the challenge of training teachers and teaching children to read.Source: Rádio Moçambique
