Challenge

In Tanzania, 70% of children cannot read at primary level of education and 80% cannot perform basic math skills. At national level, there is a lack of vision for learning. At the school level, poorly trained and under resourced establishments mean that learning is not adapted to the needs of the children with disability. At the community level, little value is given to the importance of problem solving and creativity.

Solution

We work to address these critical gaps and short fallings. From our hub, we teach 21st century skills to children from all backgrounds. We provide services for early learning, for creative expression and for analytical thinking. We partner with schools within the country to ensure accessibility and equity. We train teachers and education professionals how to use locally available resources to create active learning spaces for children with disabilities. We invite our children to be creators of t

Long-Term Impact

Children with disability who can think critically and analytically are able to effect change. This impact ripples through whole country. Having a generation of children equipped with the skills and capacities to analyse problems, evaluate impact and problem solve is the most powerful and transformational tool.
