Strong Hearts Education
Starting small and growing naturally, the Kid’s Learning centre has expanded from roughly 20 kids in December 2008 to over 300 kids currently accessing the various programs per month. From a single outreach program to over 15 innovative projects, the scope of the centre continues to grow. In 2009, we hosted the first year of our Kindergarten school. In September 2013, that school expanded to include Grade one Students, and in total educates 115 students towards a life of learning.
Programs offered at the Learning Centre:
- Youth Leadership Workshops
- After School Study Programs
- Home Work Assistance and Tutoring
- National Exam Preparation Courses
- English Classes
- Dialogue and Discussion Programs
- Crafts and Games
- Open Centre (recreation)
- Sports Camps
- Holiday Celebrations
- Adult Women’s Community Discussion Program
- Basic Health Training
- And others…
Strong Hearts developed an education program to provide a place of learning for children in the Kore community.
Our Kid’s Learning Centre was founded with the opening of a our kindergarten, Strong Academy, in September 2009! In 2010, a nursery school was added to keep up with the growing demand for adequate education in the community and in 2013, we expanded yet again by adding a grade one class. Our hope is that the school will continue to expand every year.
We offer full-day classes to 125 children, and with our lunch program, we are able to provide the nutrition they may not be getting at home. Our goal at Strong Academy is that we will provide a foundation to ensure the students have the best possible transition into the formal school system.
