Teacher Training School Bié students are having an important impact on the teaching of primary pupils, at local schools as well as at more remote, rural schools. The overall impression is that the program is unique in being able to meet the needs of the population, children included, in rural areas. The communities that benefit from the project have expressed great admiration for it, and for the way the students develop in terms of strength, humanity, experience, activity and creativity. The students themselves are passionate about the program.
