Dowa TTC in “Building Week” Action

Development Aid from People to People’s Dowa Teachers’ Training College embarked on a building week from 19 to 23 July 2017. Cleaning actions are done DAPP staff members together with the student-teachers.
This is one of the ways through which student-teachers, who are trained to teach in rural areas, acquire mobilization skills to engage their fellow teachers, their learners and surrounding community members to play role in building and maintaining their school environments.
DAPP believes in training teachers who do not keep their hands in the pockets but should become change agents in rural communities by playing a leading role in community development activities.

The exercise equips the student-teachers with technical skills in painting, carpentry, brick laying, welding and plumbing which become useful when they go to work in the rural areas since they use the skills in maintaining their schools.
Among the tasks carried out in the week were; digging of a water harvesting pit, making water ways, terraces, slashing of grass and picking litter around the college environment, maintaining of leaking toilets, installation of watering pipes in the vegetable gardens and building as well as plastering of the college’s sign post.
