JRS Project

With support from Jesuit Refugee Service, VDF trained about 585 PTA mentors in more than 150 schools in target communities in Salayea, Zorzor and Voinjama districts in PTA mentoring process, PTA administrative budgeting process, PTA fund-raising strategies and substance abuse. Among those trained are 57 town chiefs, 53 Traditional Leaders, 35 Women leaders. VDF also set up 22 PTA Mentoring Centres (4 in Salayea, 8 in Zorzor and 10 in Voinjama Districts) where PTA mentors were to meet regularly to share experiences, learn lessons, plan actions and get Mentor Training. On average, each PTA mentoring centre serves 27 PTA mentors from nine schools.
