Client: Perivoli Schools Trust
The two-year training programme shows teachers how to organise their classrooms and how to make stimulating activities and games form clean recyclable waste materials such as bottle tops, yoghurt cartons, loo rolls etc. It has been described as “Blue Peter on steroids”.
Perivoli Trainers address up to thirty teachers at a time with sixteen Modules, regular support groups and monthly class visits. The programme is free to the teachers and costs the Foundation about USD 3 per child per annum.
The programme has reached over 11,500 teachers and an estimated 250,000 children and has a target to reach 200,000 nursery schoolteachers and 5 million children over time.
It is recognised to transform the nursery school teaching experience for teachers and children alike. Conversations are now taking place with local Ministries of Education for it to be formally adopted for state funded primary schools.
