Schools for Children and Youth
Humana People to People currently runs 18 primary and secondary schools in Angola, Mozambique ,Namibia , Zambia ,Zimbabwe and India . These schools provide education for orphans and other children whose situation has caused them to stop attending school and in many cases live on the street.
In Africa, Humana People to People has developed a specific model for these vulnerable children called Children’s Town. These are boarding schools with a full-time program, where children live and receive lessons in academic and practical life skills . The children have counseling access to help them over difficulties from the past; all with the aim of enabling the children lead a sound productive life in the future. Schools for children are organized around basic education, constructive discipline and state administered examinations. As a general element of the different schools they often find aims such as the development of each child to become an active part of and a participant in the national effort for a better future.
The schools strive for the students to reunite with their extended families and enter the mainstream school system after some years of rehabilitation
In India Humana People to People has established a similar model called Academy for Working Children (AWC), especially designed with a flexible program to meet the needs of the poorest slum children, and they work with the parents and communities to improve their conditions in various aspects. The children schools have an extensive cooperation with the social welfare systems in the respective countries, which refer the students to the schools.
