To meet Paraguay’s need for more pre-school teachers FEISA, a department of the Evangelical University of Paraguay, opened in 2000. Their vision is to transform the lives of children in Paraguay by training and equipping teachers to the highest standard who will teach with creativity, integrity and love. Their aims are to produce well qualified and trained teachers, to produce a degree course and various training courses for established teachers to improve the standard of education in the whole country and to reach the very poorest children with high quality education.

Rote learning has been the educative norm in Paraguay and the staff are pioneering dynamic, interactive teaching where the child learns through play and discovery. The students are also encouraged to set an example to the children by the way they live.

Investing and supporting local people.
