“Education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world” Nelson Mandela
During the Summer Programme, the Swansea Siavonga Partnership works with women’s groups to improve their skills in a variety of workshops. These range from literacy and numeracy, First Aid, business skills, crafts etc. Working with women’s groups is crucial because it is the women that are the most likely to pass on this education to their children, consequently providing a new generation with these skills. Students carry out a wide range of workshops in schools, working with SNG and local teachers to identify the most useful subjects
In 2011 we launched our School Linking Programme which links schools in Siavonga with those in Swansea for the purpose of creating a cultural exchange between the two.
