The project shapes young people into “another kind of teacher” who bring passion to the profession of teaching. This passion for educating children is one of the effect of the program. The students work in the most remote parts of the province, such as Bengo in Alto Cauale on the border with Malange. This indicates another aspect of the impact of the project. Recent graduates from Team 2015 commented on the benefits they obtained from their training, such as the experience gained during the Empowering Girls program. Many changed their way of looking at life, and the positive transformation has helped relationships within the family. Parents remark on the fact that their sons have turned into men, with a purpose in society. The local authorities acknowledge the important effect of the school in the number of primary school teachers trained over the past years. The Vice Governor of the Province, in a speech at the graduation ceremony for Team 2015, declared that the school was force for primary education in Uige and to continue investing in the training of teachers.
