Welcome to BARAZA


Baraza is pleased to report that in July 2022, we held another two-day UNITY teacher training programme for staff of Sabel School in Munich, Germany.

This year’s teacher training course will enable staff to run weekly UNITY content for every 6th grade child attending Sabel School from the new academic year which begins in September 2022.

In 2021-22, every 5th grade child received weekly UNITY sessions and this now builds on that excellent start.

UNITY stands for Understand Navigate Inclusive Teamwork and You.It is our flagship, exciting and inspiring life skills programme for young people which builds self-confidence and provides an encounter-based learning environment for schoolchildren. UNITY will create citizens who are open-minded, skilled and resilient to face some of society's challenges. It is a scheme which will equip young people for life.

Sharen Ravat - Baraza UNITY lead, delivered the training which enabled teachers to receive early sight of some of the 6th grade module content. The session subjects which the teachers discussed covered bullying, self-confidence and war.
