THE EDUCATION CHALLENGE IN UGANDA
For decades, Uganda and many African nations have relied on the traditional way of learning with teachers acting as the main form of learning. With success being driven by rote memorization of notes taken in different classes, success and progression to the next grade are driven by rigid examinations. As such school-going children not so good at memorizing have continued to struggle.
THE PROBLEM IN REFUGEE COMMUNITIES
Today, Uganda is Africa’s largest refugee-hosting nation, with more than 1.4 million refugees. Nearly 800,000 of these refugees below the age of 18, however, according to SIT Digital Collection research, only 41% were attending school in 2017. This leaves 59% (472,000) of refugee children out of school. Further, according to the Ugandan Ministry of Education, only 11% of these students were able to enroll for secondary education in 2018.
Young children love to play and haveing fun; play is a strength most children embody and a language most children understand best.
Our goal is to develop accessible, fun, and engaging academic resources for both teachers and students that will transform learning institutions into spaces learners look forward to be in.
The 5 STA-Z Educational Game
The 5 STA-Z is a fun and engaging academic board game based on the four core subjects (Maths, English, Science and Social Studies) taught at primary school level in Uganda and most African countries.
The game breaks down the learning content into easily digestible modularized packages that permit students to learn academic content effectively. Game mechanics like chance and jeopardy not only makes the game fun, but also help develop students’ critical thinking and communicative skills.
