KIDS ALIVE! INDONESIA (TANJUNG BALAI)
PROJECT PARTNER: Yayasan Anugrah Baru (a local NGO)
Started in 2014, there are now 2 IMPACTS classes running each week on Fridays and Saturdays (after school hours) with 10-15 students per class. Every Saturday, volunteers from Singapore travel to the island about 2.5 hours ferry ride away to run the classes with our Indonesian partners as teacher assistants. After years of training, these teacher assistants are now capable of running the lessons on their own. In each lesson, students are allocated time to play with educational toys specially selected by the team to develop intelligences, followed by student-centered English lessons that are planned with activities and games to enhance learning. Throughout the whole time, emphasis is placed on character building with teachers as role models. Currently, our Indonesian partners have taken over the teaching role and are running 3 ImpACTS classes assisted by youth who have graduated from Kids Alive! program.
