IN-SCHOOL SITES IN PISSILA AND TIBTENGA

We serve children at two government-run primary schools

We are working with Catholic Relief Services to provide tablet-based instruction to children in grades 1-3. The first phase is a pre-pilot in two schools, in which we will validate the suitability of the delivery model and the fit of our software application in this context. In the next phase, we will expand to serve children in 20 schools.
