Occupation: Student of theology
Project: Musical and English Training for the Youth in the Church and from the Community
The goal of the project is to train youth in Mozambique within the church and society in music instrument playing (guitar, piano, tromped) and English classes for a period of nine months.
At end of September 2009, 30 youth are trained and able to perform Musical Instruments (Guitar, Trumpets and Piano) and acquainted with English (written & spoken) skills.
The goal was mostly achieved. However, only 26 young people completed the project.
Successes and challenges
It was a great a success that none of those who committed to the class dropped out. This despite the fact that the circumstances of life were quite challenging for them.
It was a major challenge when the English teacher became sick and the group had to organize together with the pastor a new solution.
