Addressing Barriers to Learning and Development

MIET AFRICA employs a holistic and comprehensive approach to addressing barriers to development.

Emerging out of our Schools as Centres of Care and Support model, this focus area entails supporting the transformation of education institutions in SADC Member States into inclusive centres of learning, care and support, where every learner, especially the most vulnerable, can learn. Key to achieving this is the reduction of the impact of societal, systemic, pedagogical and intrinsic barriers that impede the achievement of the Education For All targets and Sustainable Development Goals.
