Thematic Areas


DAPP’s pedagogy is characterised by creating a space for students of all ages to be the drivers and navigators of their own training, in a collective setting where studying together and individually goes hand in hand. Exploring the reality of life and using what is learned to influence that reality are essential recognisable elements – from preschool to teacher diploma level, in academic studies integrated with sustainable life skills.

  • We offer teacher training designed to equip teachers to teach in rural primary schools
  • We offer Vocational skills training in areas such as Tailoring, Carpentry and Agriculture to 67 children and youths from communities.
  • We offer Practical Theoretical Education (PTE) from Grade 7 to 9 in a double stream that incorporates children from the communities and former street children, 173 children.
