Improving School Achievements through Bilingual Education
Training education professionals from the project’s beneficiary districts. Trainings were focused on methodologies and strategies that contribute to continuous improvement of the teaching and learning process in the first three grades. In 2017, 119 teachers and 197 pedagogical directors and representatives from district’s education department received training.
Production of materials in partnership with the Ministry of Education and Cambridge Education. Four reading books for first and second grade (including respective manuals with methodological suggestions for teachers), 30 read-aloud books, and 36 decodable books were produced in Xichangana and Xirhonga. These serve to develop a student’s skill in reading and writing, as well as improve his or her attention, active listening, comprehension, speaking skills, and vocabulary.
The production of Changana second grade books has resulted in an agreement to produce, not only reinforcement materials for reading and writing (as it was the case for grade one books), but also the second-grade student book. Along with use in FFK beneficiary schools, this book will be used in other Maputo Province schools. There is also the prospect of extending the use of this material to other schools where the Changana language is spoken.
Introduction of a coaching system to offer support in organizing, planning, and pedagogy for school leadership and all first through third grade teachers. The Reading Coach supports the teacher directly and permanently, by assisting in joint planning, production, the use of didactic material, the correct use and conservation of reading and writing reinforcement materials, ornamenting the classrooms, and organizing the students. The Reading Coach also contributes to perfecting methodological strategies, observes the classes, and ensures that the education programs are fulfilled.

Preventing Child, Early and Forced Marriage (CEFM) through Open, Distance & Technology-Based Education
ADPP is implementing the GIRLS Inspire project in seven targeted communities around Nacala Porto in Nampula Province. Nacala Porto is one of most used ports of entry into Malawi, Zambia and Zimbabwe. Research by the International Organization for Migration (2006) reports that Nacala Porto ranks high for HIV and AIDS vulnerability, as it is frequented by a transient population that uses it as access to a commercial sex trade, which exposes children and women to the risk of sexual abuse and exploitation. The GIRLS Inspire project is being implemented in this area due to its high rate of child marriages. The World Development Report (World Bank, 2011) states the province has high levels of gender inequality, characterised by weak participation of women in the productive economy, high levels of early marriage and low levels of female literacy.
