To develop and refine Institute Program and hubs in year 3.
The Matènwa Community Learning Center (MCLC) was established as a school that would ban corporal punishment, offer instruction in Creole, incorporate gardening as part of its core curriculum, and put an emphasis on child-centered learning in an environment of mutual respect, investigation and critical thinking.
This is the third year of support for the Institute that seeks to refine and expand upon the basic components developed the first two years. It includes developing training materials that can be shared with the greater community.
