Co-financed by the Portuguese Government – IPAD, USAID and the Carr Foundation.

The educational centre includes 2 classrooms, 6 dorms for students and their families, each one with it’s own bathroom, an eating area with an industrial kitchen and service area, a small sick room, ablutions and a storage for outdoor tents.

The centre envisions being the beginning of an educational process where guests can learn about different aspects of the Gorongosa National Park, the country, its environment, sustainable development and preservation.

The centre itself is an example of efficient use of local materials and advanced building technologies, reduction of energy consumption and rainwater collection, becoming a prototype for the park and the region’s future development.
