ASEM Schools

What was once the homes for thousands of children (1992 to 2010 ), Macurungo Center and Manga Center, evolved into Educational Centers with primary and secondary school.

Macurungo Primary School

ASEM’s primary school "Jorge José Traquino” (***) provides education to children for over twenty years and is teaching from grade 1 to 7. The school gives a special attention and support to orphans and children living in situation of vulnerability.
Thousands of children have had the opportunity to graduate after conclusion of our Macurungo School.

***) Following a fatal car accident of our former director and "Father" to thousands of Children, ASEM decided to nominate its schools after him, “Jorge José Traquino - Macurungo School " and "Jorge José Traquino - Manga School ", to honor him and the great work he has done to contributed to make a better World.

The Macurungo School year 2018 started with 1260 students, including 673 girls. The Ministry of Education pays the salary (since 2007) of the 22 teachers that are lecturing the children.  ASEM is paying the administrative staff of the School and its functioning. At this moment we have a total of 7 classrooms.


At the beginning of the 2018 school year, 54 students had enrolled in the evening course, secondary education, to which 26 others were added during the first quarter for a total of 80 students, of whom 37 are boys and 43 are girls.  In the evening course, 9 professors teach Portuguese, English, History, Geography, Biology, Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics and Visual Education.
