Summary

Digital Leap will enable TajRupt to scale access to our civic education curriculum through regional expansion across Central Asia. In the pilot initiative (January - March 2019), approximately 50 students across Kazakhstan will be able to enroll in our 10-week after-school curriculum live through our partnerships with local entities.

Challenge

With an average age of 26.7 years, Central Asia is one of the youngest regions in the world. While having regional secondary school enrollment rate that is higher than the global average, the education systems of Central Asian countries have largely sustained the chronic deficiency of opportunities for students to engage in extracurricular activities that could enhance their critical thinking skills and civic participation from the Soviet era.

Solution

TajRupt's approach to civic education has focused on after-school activitism to compensate for lack of student opportunities within the state-run education systems. Placing emphasis on sustained educational impact as opposed to short-term trainings, we developed a 10-week civic education curriculum that focuses on themes of gender equality, media freedom, debate, and social impact. We are now seeking to extend the reach of our curriculum regionally through digitization and online classrooms.

Long-Term Impact

TajRupt's English-language curriculum has the potential of impacting hundreds of Kazakhstani youth and transforming them into leaders of change in their communities. This strategy aligns with significant upcoming reforms in the country's education system as it is undergoing a period of linguistic change. The government is committed to building a trilingual society with the goal of increasing the share of population speaking Kazakh, Russian, and English to 15% by 2025.
