Best Practice Case: TC Project number TC9905059: Ticuna Education Project
AbstractThe general objective of this project was to improve the quality of education at the Ticuna indigenous schools in the Amazonas state in Brazil through the implementation of a four-course Bilingual Ticuna teacher program in which the indigenous people are the principal actors in the transformation of their education system. The outcomes of this program went beyond its intended objectives of training bilingual Ticuna teachers and developing Ticuna teaching materials, to becoming a vehicle for the Ticuna communities to preserve and maintain Ticuna cultural traditions, language and values.
