Frontline Institute

Is a training institute for key people in development from the projects within Humana People to People with the aim of working in the frontline of development and fighting against the dehumanizing phenomena such as poverty, hunger, illiteracy and diseases. It trains Humana People to People employees as leaders in development for the benefit of the people in rural areas and townships in Southern Africa, Guinea Bissau, India, China and Central America. 
More than 4240 participants have gone through the courses of Basic Project Management and Advanced Project Management and more than 90% of them still work in DAPP Zimbabwe.
The institute is international in its character. Countless people to people links are formed and strengthened; friendships and understanding across national and cultural borders are built and maintained.

 

Its History

In 1983 interviews with a number of Frontline State presidents pointed to the need for training of people, who would work together to create development across borders and cultures and with the understanding of the necessity to create a new image of Africa - an image of unity, peace and progress. This led to the formation of Frontline Institute, first as a training centre for Europeans and Africans in Denmark, and in 1991 Frontline Institute in Zimbabwe was started up. Frontline Institute in Zimbabwe has worked as a model for other Frontline Institutions which were developed in other SADC countries after 2010.

The students at Frontline Institute have all been active in development projects and have experienced what it takes to create development. They know the conditions that people are facing in the everyday in the cities and in the rural areas of Africa and India. Most of them have been living in the same communities and have been part of the everyday struggle to deal with conflicts and poverty and to make things go forward.

Training at the institute allows for holistic growth of individuals from different parts of the world, in the name of development, all with the philosophy to fight the dehumanising phenomena such as poverty, diseases, hunger, illiteracy, climate change among other issues. The students are trained to create changes and to understand the process that it takes to make the changes come about.  The students are trained on the best way to engage communities in development projects within the areas of Child Aid, Agriculture, Education, Health and Emergencies. When they leave, students are able to work in the field together with the people.

They are trained to create partnerships with all the people, who are concerned with development, in Government and non-government organizations at both national and international level in order to make use of all forces and make things happen.
