This project will introduce the Kumon learning method for arithmetic and mathematics using tablets in the ‘Terakoya program (offers same curriculum as public primary schools)’ implemented at Rainbow House, a support facility for bereaved children run by NGO Ashinaga Uganda. Local terakoya teachers and Japanese Exchange Students (university students) sent from Japan by Ashinaga Ikueikai (Ashinaga Foundation) will act as teachers.
