ETF Network for Excellence - SISI: Sharing Innovation in Social Inclusion - PEDAGOGICAL INNOVATION FOR SOCIAL INCLUSION - second thematic meeting
The ENE SISI initiative- Sharing Innovation in Social Inclusion - Skills for Inclusion under ETF Network for Excellence is hosting the second online meeting focusing on Pedagogical Innovation for Social Inclusion on May 11, 2023, 11:00- 13:00 CEST.
This session will focus on the innovative pedagogies of two of the schools of the HUMANA network, which are also members of the ETF Network for Excellence and actively participate to the activities organised by ENE SISI initiative: Mikolongwe Vocational School, Malawi (DAPP Malawi) and Ponesai Vanhu Technical College, Zimbabwe (DAPP Zimbabwe). Since 1997, Mikolongwe Vocational School provides rural youth, school leavers, orphans, and underprivileged youths from all over Malawi with the necessary skills and training to access employment opportunities. Ponesai Vanhu Technical College was created in 1981, shortly after the independence of Zimbabwe. The College targets extremely vulnerable youths aged between 18-35 years (rural youth, women and girls, students with disabilities, etc.).
The role of Social Inclusion in HUMANA’s TVET programmes will be also presented. HUMANA People to People is an international network of 29 local NGOs working towards the sustainable development of vulnerable communities, focusing on Sub Saharan Africa, Latin America and Asia.
Today, HUMANA’s member organizations run a total of 16 TVET Schools in rural areas of Angola, Guinea Bissau, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, Zambia, and Zimbabwe. All TVET programmes –both formal or informal- are an intrinsic tool to targeting and empowering rural youth, women and girls, persons with disabilities, migrants, and other disadvantaged groups.
The event is crucial as it highlights the importance of continuous learning and experimentation, challenges traditional teaching practices, and explores new ways of engaging with students while promoting social inclusion.
The event will be in English only without interpretation.
