The ability to self-manage, express empathy, persevere through difficulty, and critically assess new information is essential for personal and community development.
Rote learning is often the dominant schooling experience of learners which requires a fundamental paradigm-shift to a meaning-making orientation.
Left unchecked, underdeveloped socio-emotional skills can have a detrimental effect on academic performance.1
What we do
We create a culture of learning for understanding to develop personal agency and build cohesive community.
Learning is an active process and learners are encouraged to persevere with new and difficult concepts.
Our Saturday life-skills sessions include: opportunities for self-reflection; project-based creative learning; group activities; literacy fun days; parental involvement; study-skills training; exam preparation; and career guidance.
How we measure
We conduct regular qualitative assessments and provide multiple channels for learner and parent feedback.
Parents and learners provide feedback through questionnaires, interviews, and through regular meetings and telephonic contact.
