A Transformative Educational Journey

Greetings, dear readers

It brings us immense joy to share the inspiring journey of the Learning Centre at the Eco Centre, Vila Ambaramo, a transformative initiative that took root in September 2023 with the noble purpose of serving and educating the vibrant community of Macaneta.

Currently hosting around 70 children, the Learning Centre has become a hub of learning and growth, although attendance varies, and there is no financial burden on the eager learners. Approximately 30 children consistently participate in classes, and their enthusiasm extends to encouraging more friends and family to join the educational journey.

One of the unique aspects of our approach involves personalized conversations. Our dedicated school teacher engages in one-on-one discussions with parents, emphasizing the pivotal role they play in motivating and supporting their children’s education. We understand that, at times, societal views may perceive education as a potential hindrance to other responsibilities, and our conversations seek to address these concerns.

At the Learning Centre, we pride ourselves on removing barriers to education. All required materials are provided, and the only prerequisite for participation is the child’s presence. Classes run from Monday to Friday, with two sessions each day – 08:00 to 10:00 and 14:00 to 16:00. This scheduling flexibility ensures accessibility for students balancing school commitments.

Our curriculum is designed to be both enriching and diverse. From environmental awareness and language studies (Portuguese and English) to poetry, creative classes, and self-esteem enhancement, we aim to provide a holistic educational experience.

We are acutely aware of the challenges that hinder children in our community from attending traditional schools. Factors such as the distance between home and school, financial constraints, and cultural norms that prioritize work over education have been identified. Through ongoing efforts, including engaging with parents and addressing these challenges head-on, we aspire to break down these barriers and make education accessible to all.

In conclusion, the Learning Centre at Vila Ambaramo remains committed to its mission, and we are immensely grateful for the support of our community. Together, we believe in fostering a positive learning environment that empowers every child to dream, learn, and thrive.

Stay tuned for more updates on this transformative educational journey!
