OUR PROJECTS ARE DESIGNED THROUGH COMMUNITY PARTNERSHIP AND SUPPORT WITH-AND-FOR CHILDREN. WE PLACED CHILDREN AT THE CENTER OF OUR WORK TO ENSURE OUR PROGRAMS ARE RELEVANT, SCALABLE AND SUSTAINABLE WHERE THE BENEFITS ARE REACHING CHILDREN IN NEED. WE HAVE VALUE FOR MONEY AND ENSURES THE HIGHEST FORM OF ACCOUNTABILITY.
The model of the centre is to combine early childhood with a child-centred development that put emphasis on listening, reading, practicing and testing. At the centre, we give every child a voice and opportunity to interact, ask questions and feel proud to try and fail.
Our model of tutorship is focus on mentoring the child to achieving his/her full potential. We inspire children to learn something that isn’t found in school. Our teaching curriculum looks at Coding for Kids, Understanding the Computer, Developing Self-Confidence, Learning to Read, Story Telling and the Power of Communication.

At the end of their talent exhibitions, pupils from three primary schools won worthy prizes of school learning materials, bag packs and certificates.
