New Horizons Workshop



Improving quality education for children in 21 Marist schools in the 6 countries

04/08/2019: Mozambique

The six countries (Angola, South African, Malawi, Mozambique, Zambia, and Zimbabwe) that make up the Province of Southern Africa participated in a training workshop organized by FMSI from 23 – 24 July 2019 in Maputo, Mozambique to equip country coordinators with necessary knowledge and skills as the Province embarks on a three-year New Horizons Phase Two (NHII) program. The program is funded by Misean Cara and will take place in 21 schools of the Province. 

The next three years will be exciting in the Southern Africa Province.  The New Horizons II has various activities that aim at achieving the following expected results:

  • Increased access to quality education for children and girls from poor and marginalized families in 21 Marist schools in the 6 countries involved, involving local experts already trained in New Horizons 1
  • Strengthened capacity of Marist Schools to uproot violence and discrimination against children in school and community environments by adopting a child rights approach and inclusive teaching methods so to ensure children well-being 
  • Increased capacity of school leaders and teachers to drive school improvement towards quality standards of education and sustainability 
  • Reinforced the Education system at institutional level in terms of its capacity to advocate children rights.

In his remarks, Bro Norbert Mwila (the Provincial) thanked FMSI for the work they have passionately and jointly carried out with the Secretariat for Education and Evangelization to ensure that the project funding is solicited.  He thanked also Misean Cara for their timely intervention, which will go a long way in improving the quality of Mission of the Marist family in the Province, and hopefully for the rest of Africa and Madagascar.  Finally, the Provincial commended the country coordinators and other leaders for accepting their respective roles and encouraged them to abide by all the project details and ensure that the project achieves its intended results in all countries of the Province.

The facilitators (Br. Mark OMEDE, Andrea ROSSI, and Andrea CORTEMIGLIA) were on point in delivering the content of the workshop.
