Grain of Rice Academy
Grain of Rice Academy is a primary (elementary school) that currently serves 70 students ranging in age from preschool to grade 8. Just under half of our students were formerly part of Grain of Rice Kids Program, which was based in Kibera for 7 years. These students transitioned to our new location and now board on site and return home on school breaks. Grain of Rice Academy seeks to provide high-quality, literacy based education that is hands-on and infused with the arts. We are integrating these principles in conjunction with the new Competency Based Curriculum that is being implemented in Kenya. On a typical week, you can find students participating in STEM activities, playing the recorder, creating paintings and sculptures, reading in our classroom libraries, and participating in guided reading groups. Our goal is help children become problem solvers and leaders in their communities.
