Idalina teaches at the primary school of Chingoe in Gaza in the district of Bilene. She and other teachers were the first Gaza teachers to be trained and to implement Literacy Boost methodology to develop children’s abilities in reading, writing and numeracy in their respective classes.
The fact that these children improved their reading and writing by about 60% in a single school year attracted the Ministry of Education’s attention. It has been requesting that Save the Children disclose this methodology to various circles of interest and technical education within the ministry that ensure the quality of education. In Mozambique, the quality of education remains a major challenge. Nearly 25% of all school children can neither read nor write in the appropriate class.
Idalina has been invited to give a lesson to colleagues and technicians of the Ministry of Education in Maputo. This shows the differences that the various strategies and methodologies, including literacy Boost, are starting to make and that they are starting to be adopted by the Mozambique Government, which is also concerned with the quality of education.
