Thank you Larissa Escobar - one of the most critical factors for our scale up success is getting community buy in. We have a very strong focus on working with community leaders and local organizations that are already on the ground, to make sure that they take ownership and accountable for their clubs! Thanks for your support!

Thanks August!!

Hello Ofir,

The solution is ready for initial deployment, and it was just tested in Nyaragusu Refugee camp last week. However, our goal is to continue growing the content available within the kits, as well as documentation/ facilitator guide materials as we deploy.

The grade levels currently targeted are pre-primary - class 5 (Tanzania/ Kenya/ Rwanda curriculum). We create all of our own content, and currently have content divided into two broader age groups: 3-6 and 7-13.

A teacher's role is to select content which complements what he or she is teacher, and use the content as either an introduction or reinforcement. The teacher can then follow activity guides for activities to do with students around the content, or (as some of the teachers we currently work with do) to develop his or her own activities based upon what the kids have watched. We are currently working on best practice videos for teachers (and community teaching assistants without formal teacher training) to help them with this style of blended learning.

Best,

Nisha
