In September 2013 six instructors began their training program at the rural school in Ilomba (l’École rurale d’Ilomba). According to the participants, the courses they are taking in leadership, pedagogy, data processing and new technology are very stimulating and informative.
They have acquired new teaching methods such as learning by interrogation which the students find very effective.
Extracts from a testimonial given by one of the student educators : « This training allows us to better understand our students as we employ the appropriate method for each class. Today, at the end of each course, we have a clear sense of what we have taught our students and what they have learned. »
In October 2013, 25 young girls from Bingerville began their school year at the rural school of Ilomba (École rurale d’Ilomba). For these girls who range in age from 13 to 18 and who live a life of extreme poverty, the training program provided by Club UNESCO served as a springboard for the completion of their primary education.
The students took intensive courses in French, English, Mathematics as well as History and Geography. Throughout their studies, they greatly appreciated the content of their courses and made remarkable progress in them.
In addition, the cooking and pastry-making courses not only taught the young girls the basics of a balanced diet but also allowed them to earn some money through the sale of the food they prepared in class.
Thanks to the financial support provided by LINCCO, transportation to class, the classes themselves and the uniforms were all offered free of charge to the students.
It’s not difficult to hold the students’ attention during the pastry-making course for it is something they are all eager to learn.
We leave you with this touching letter of gratitude from one of the students and a reminder that we still need your support to see this project through to completion. Please help us raise the final $7,500 needed to complete this great initiative.
