The PIP project, funded by the LEGO Foundation, aims to improve the quality of education in Rwanda for boys and girls by learning through play with technology (LtPT). RTP will scale making and tinkering to all primary schools of Rwanda by linking the activities and skills to the Rwandan primary curriculum. Right To Play will work in 30 districts across four provinces in Rwanda, as well as Kigali center. The project will collaborate with key stakeholders to develop new resources on learning through play (LtP) and Tech, improve the capacity of teachers and strengthen their support systems. This will lead to teachers using an approach in the classroom that incorporates play and technology (making/tinkering, coding and robotics) to improve learning and the development of holistic skills in children.
