Imagine being a school child who has never played with puzzles or watched an animated movie. For some kids, it's their reality. The NOBLE Club provides public primary school children in disadvantaged communities with the practical and hands-on learning they don't receive in classrooms. We expose them to new experiences and broaden their imaginations, which enables them to dream bigger and different. We provide them with the essential 21st-century skills necessary for their development.
Children enrolled in public schools in disadvantaged communities often lack access to extracurricular activities and experiential forms of learning needed to aid their overall mental and emotional well-being. Due to financial constraints in these schools, only traditional classroom learning is prioritized. As a result, they are less likely to gain critical 21st-century soft skills they need to fully thrive and are thus unable to compete with their peers in private schools.
We implement the NOBLE club in public primary schools located in disadvantaged communities, with the aim of providing public school children with 21st-century soft skills. For 9 months, the NOBLE club provides primary six pupils with hands-on and practice-oriented training on leadership, communication, public speaking, critical thinking and problem-solving and gender norms.
Through the NOBLE club, public primary school children will be empowered to reach their full potential and to be extraordinary leaders who can compete with their peers from well-off socio-economic backgrounds. Gaining these skills will lead to the development of more confident and well-rounded children who can contribute to their personal development, the development of their families and subsequently their communities.
