To date, 11,500 learners have completed our year-long after-school program and we enrolled our 13,500th learner in February 2020.
We are data-driven in our approach and in measuring ourselves, continuously improving or maintaining the strong impact that we create in our programs, including excellent attendance, persistence, quality instruction, and content knowledge improvement. Using our internally developed online learner management system (LMS) and our external evaluation results conducted by Ukufunda Education Consulting we measured the following impact in 2019:
average attendance rate in all Numeric after-school classes
average persistence in our program (in other words, for every 100 children who started our program in February 2019, 85 completed the program in November)·
extra hours of maths instruction each child received as part of our programs
the percentage of teaching interns who are studying towards a B.Ed
learners who wrote the endline test achieved a mark of 80% and above, and 122 of them were Numeric learners.
of participants were female
outperform their peers
in 100% of our partner schools.
Numeric learners improved by
14.81 percentage points
while their non-participating peers improved by 5.05 percentage points, resulting in a 9.76 percentage point net shift in maths content knowledge
improve three times more
than their non-participating peers.
