“I like to play banana and entrada,” says Hotência mentioning some of her favourite traditional games

Hortência Daniela is a lucky girl. She is a first grade student at the EPC Parta Primary School in Angoche, Nampula, and already participating in Physical education and sports classes. This was not common some years ago: it is only recently that Physical education and sport classes have been extended to the first grades in her school.

This was one of the objectives of the International Inspiration Programme: to introduce PE classes into all grades in schools, and especially to the primary schools where they were often lacking.

“I like to play banana and entrada,” says Hotência mentioning some of her favourite traditional games, which she and her friends use to play during PE classes. “Yes, and she plays well,” confirm her fellow classmates.
