About the project.

The Bishop of Cunene proposed that the school for Humbre be established in Angola, and it was intended to serve as an education facility for both boys and girls, run by nuns and priests. Boys would have had workshops to study masonry, mechanical, and electrical abilities, while girls would have had facilities to acquire cooking, sewing, and other undefined skills. Priests and nuns would also assign different homes, which would be apart of preserving their sense of segregation. This division would be done by the church that divided the plot. This system attempted to uphold social and religious customs while offering a hands-on education customized to the community’s requirements.

Added value.

  1. The school focuses on imparting essential skills
  2. The design respects cultural norms and religious protocols by ensuring physical separation between genders and providing facilities tailored to the specific needs of the community
