Frontline Institute Angola was established in 2009 by ADPP Angola in Huambo Province. It is the second institution of its kind, and is
based on the original Frontline Institute in Zimbabwe. Courses comprise 6 months of education at the Frontline Institute in Huambo and either a 5-month practical period or advanced training at Frontline Institute Zimbabwe.
Since its launch, Frontline Institute Angola has trained more than 300 staff and volunteers from ADPP projects to work at the frontline of development, helping to fight against poverty, hunger, illiteracy and disease.
Frontline Institute trains key personnel to work in the frontline of development and expansion at ADPP projects. The participants are recruited among employees, volunteers and former students in ADPP projects, who have shown commitment to development. The project benefits the participants themselves, equipping them with new skills. It also reaches thousands of largely rural community members who benefit from the professionality and passion of the participants, both during training as well as after graduation.
Frontline Institute provides training in basic project management skills. Six months are spent learning about development and gaining practical skills, after which participants gain on the job management experience over five months at ADPP projects. In 2019, they worked at Farmers’ Clubs in three provinces, the Sustainable Charcoal Project, Calandula Agricultural Centre and Ramiro Courses and Conference Centre. 63 people were in training in 2019. Selected participants attended advanced management training at Frontline Institute in Zimbabwe.
