Twog Early Learning Initiative
HundrED has not validated this innovation
Why did you create this innovation?
To contribute to the global effort made to improve proficiency levels especially among the less privileged and rural communities in Uganda particularly and Africa in general.
How does your innovation work in practice?
We approach headteachers, class teachers, and parents and discuss the lessons for their children or classes and all thelikely critical skills a child can learn from these lessons. We ask for any special needs or observations made of their students or children.
We then source the necessary materials and play strategies needed for the set of critical skills for their students.
We then provide play activities and guide on routine and scheduling requirements.
We also courage and guide parents on how to participate in children led activities and allow children to explore and learn on their own.
Every situation is unique so we are always finding new ways of doing things.
How has it been spreading?
It has so far been mainly through word of mouth and referrals. We are working with teachers and parents especially on homeschooling routines. These refer us to others.
We were getting hired by children events organisers and schools for school events.
Now with the covid-19 handle, We get in touch through WhatsApp and other social media platforms and phone calls. And there were articles run in the national dailies about our innovative work.
If I want to try it, what should I do?
For now one has to speak to one of our team members to discuss their specific needs or targets. It's from these specific needs that we are developing a general guide for our innovation. We are also working on google classroom for the general needs of literacy and numeracy improvement.
