As you know, the two externally developed articles on the Humana People to People community development actions targeting HIV and AIDS made by Thompson Reuters Foundation covered DAPP Zambia activities. The last article about Teacher Training College Mkushi is now out.

The article was a bonus contribution from the co-operation arrangement entered into between Humana People to People and Thomson Reuters Foundation seeking to highlight World AIDS Day 2017. 

The article gives an interesting perspective about how DNS Teacher Training remains relevant in uplifting rural primary school education.

Just as before, you are being invited to make use of the very article in your broader social media posting campaigns over the festive season.

-“We go to school to change our life status. Teachers should be fighting shoulder to shoulder with the poor. We need their passion otherwise these rural places will stay the same,” Ng‘andu told the @TR_Foundation in an interview. More here: 

-“I was born to be a teacher and I believe I‘m a leader,” said 26-year-old Prisca Bwalya, a student of DAPP Zambia Mukushi College of Education who cannot wait to start her teaching profession. @TR_Foundation writes: 

-“It’s not only about teaching class but being a teacher to yourself and bringing developments to the place where you work. We are ready to serve wherever they take us.” Prisca Bwalya explains to @TR_Foundation. Read:
