Teacher Training in the Mountains
Emmanuel Christian College’s commitment to take education to the most unreached is a serious business.
Through the Teachers Training outreach program, the college services have been extended to Nuba Mountains, Sudan. In partnership with Nuba Relief, Rehabilitation and Development Organization (NRRDO), ECC launched an intensive in-service teachers training for 51 teachers. 10 of the 51 students
are women. This programme attracted participants from various parts of the Nuba Mountains including the Blue Nile regions. In an area that has been dominated by Arabic language over the last 100 years, ECC is very privileged to be among the first institutions to launch its training program with English as a medium of instruction in Gidel.
Teachers who complete this program will be awarded a certificate in Education.
Young and old from various churches were invited by the Theology department of Emmanuel Christian College
(ECC) to sharpen their skills in music for one week… and they followed the call. A faithful group of close to 60
participants attended the different training sessions covering music theory, vocal and instrumental lessons with the
keyboard, the guitar, or the drums. ECC staff together with local musicians was teaching the participants competently
and with a lot of passion. Though the week seemed too short to gain enough skills, the foundation was laid and each
one is encouraged to continue practicing. ECC was appreciated for organizing a workshop which addressed a
current need of many churches within Yei Town.
