Easy2Learn (E2L)

Project Description:

 

The project’s goal is to develop integrated child friendly school models that are truly excellent in several dimensions including educational quality, inclusiveness, and locally stakeholder-driven i.e. parents, community, teachers, school managers. Activities and outputs in the Easy2Learn Project have been clustered into 4 groupings including (i) improved educational access; (ii) improved educational quality and relevance; (iii) early grade literacy with strong links to M-Learning; and (iv) improved school management.

KAPE is very proud of the fully integrated design that characterizes E2L.
