Duration of the project:

2003 - 2005


Aim of the Project:

To establish agricultural education and develop training and extension services for local farmers in the central province of Angola. The Bié province is one of the provinces most affected by four-decades-long Angolan civil war, which terminated in 2002.
After the final examination the graduates will be the first technical experts educated in the province which, until the establishment of the Center, has lacked any secondary agricultural education.
Therefore, the establishment of the Center aims to contribute to the improvement of the Angolan education system and to the resolution of socio-demographic problems, i.e. depopulation and the consequent decline of this region whose natural predispositions for agricultural production are unique.

Outputs of the Project:

Classes for local students, for first hunderd students opened in March 2004
Preparation and publication of study materials and textbooks for Czech and Angolan teachers
Organization and publication of the school journal with students‘ participation
Establishment of chemical laboratory, computer classroom and school library
