Maendeleo Education Program

In 2017 Maendeleo started the Maendeleo Education Program.We offer bright students from underprivileged families the opportunity to  study at secondary education, college or university. The program does not only support the students financially but they also get personal guidance from mentors. In the first year the program could offer 15 students to continue their studies in secondary school.  We are proud that this number could almost be doubled in 2018.

New Teaching Method for Port Reitz School

At the Port  Reitz school a new teaching method has been introduced by Maendeleo: the “Learning for Everyone” (L4E) method. This method is based on the ideas of psychologist professor Feuerstein ( 1921-2014) and focuses specifically on people with a disability or development delay. The development possibilities of the individual are central to this.
Last year we met the Engels family of the PIT (Personal Integration Therapy). They have developed this method. Since more than half of the pupils at Port Reitz School have a learning disability we were very interested to introduce this method in the school. We have started with 26 children in class 1, 2 and 3 and the results after 2 semesters are very promising. In the coming year we will expand the method to the other classes of Port Reitz School.
