The Polytechnical School Caxito (Angola)
Children’s School Caxito dates to 1986 when ADPP Angola, in collaboration with the Ministry of Education, opened a home and school for children. Since 2011, the project has been operating the Polytechnical Scholl program, while continuing to run a primary school for children from the surrounding communities. Now vocational school offers a three-year lower secondary education, from 7th to 9th grade, that combines theory and practice.
The Polytechnical Schools in Angola aims to educate the whole person: mind, hands and heart, in a bid to graduate well-rounded, knowledgeable, capable, dynamic young people who can contribute to development in Angola. School in Caxito enrolls students from the local area who are between 12 and 20 years of age and have completed primary education.
235 students have graduated from this school since the inception of the new program, 35 of them at the beginning of 2019.
