Projects
1. Care and Support for Teaching and Learning (CSTL) The Care and Support for Teaching and Learning (CSTL) programme was unanimously adopted by the Education Ministers of all Member States of SADC at a meeting in Zambia on 4 July 2008. This programme supports the Education Ministers to fulfil their commitments and intentions of providing quality education to all children. The programme was developed by the SADC Secretariat, in partnership with MIET Africa, UNESCO Regional Office and UNICEF ESARO, and provides a comprehensive approach to addressing the barriers to teaching and learning that are associated with health- and poverty-related challenges. The programme is being implemented intensively in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Mozambique, South Africa, Swaziland and Zambia. The programme is funded by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation. 2. Reducing HIV in adolescents (RHIVA) Reducing HIV in Adolescents (RHIVA) is a groundbreaking school-based HIV prevention initiative being implemented by the KwaZulu-Natal Department of Education (KZNDoE) and MIET Africa. The programme has the potential to point a way forward for reducing the rate of new HIV infections in high school learners. The primary objective of RHIVA is to assess the effectiveness of a cash-incentivized prevention intervention in reducing HIV-incidence rates in high-school learners. Conditional cash transfers are used to encourage learners to engage in positive behaviours and make healthy lifestyle choices, thereby reducing the number of HIV infections. The intervention is being tested in 14 rural high schools in Vulindlela, KwaZulu-Natal. The programme is funded by the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands.
