Challenge

Education has moved from the rudimentary way of teaching in class rooms, children have to learn digital literacy to stay relevant in the 21st century, Many Public schools don't have access to such facilities and capacity to teach this in their class rooms. The Children who attend these schools are left behind and aren't able to compete with their peers in Private Schools, where technology is deployed and trained.

Solution

In the camp children will be taught how to use a computer, android phones and mobile apps. They will learn financial literacy while playing monopoly, use Scrabble to learn new words, play chess to enhance critical thinking ,learn life skills and how to cope with stress. Global issues will be discussed, child rights and how to prevent sexual abuse using songs and videos. There will be extracurricular activities and sports during the camp.

Long-Term Impact

The project will educate 100 children per School term helping them to become productive through their thinking and can cope positively with challenges of the 21st century. This will in-turn reduce poverty, social vices and keep the community healthy. They will also be able to look out for each other as new friendships will be developed during the camp and give them exposure and make them to be able to compete with their fellow students in the Private schools.
