UMN College of Education and Human Development's Institute on Community Integration staff Amy Hewitt, Amos Hewitt-Perry, and Macdonald Metzger: Hewitt-Perry (right), Metzger (second from left), and Hewitt just completed a trip to Zambia, a country in southern Africa, where they collaborated with longtime Zambian colleagues Mikala Mukongolwa and Bishop Patrick Chisanga, as well as Bill and Sandy Beddor, to conduct training on disability rights, awareness, and community inclusion. The hope is to replicate the Home Based Education program in the Mansa diocese area in Zambia. Additionally, planning is in place to pilot the use of DirectCourse as a tool to support Home Based Educators and Special Education teachers throughout Zambia. Metzger continued on to Liberia where he is promoting training and inclusion.
