Workshops for Parents – MIET

Workshops for Parents – MIET

The Media in Education Trust (MiET Africa) conducts workshops with parents of school-going children to support them to engage with their children’s education. Jive Media Africa was contracted to develop a training programme for these parents, many of whom did not themselves have an opportunity to attend school.

To address this challenge we created a series of “picture-building” exercises, where parents discuss topics and then build pictures representing key learnings – the programme has been highly successful and we recently completed a second set of resources which deal with topics including teenage pregnancy, nutrition, parenting adolescents, financial management and creating environments conducive to learning.

The programme is already being rolled out in other regions of the sub-continent.
